Over the intervening years the hall has seen many changes and has withstood them all, but there was one fad that spelled the demise of the original floor. The stiletto heels of the 1940s and 50s ruined the cork and the floor was pitted with indentations, described as looking like a golf ball.
Following World War II the people of Featherston wanted a tribute to the memory of the men and women who fought and died, so the offices at the back of the hall were remodelled into what is now the Kiwi Hall. A supper room was created at the same time and portraits of the early settler families who donated money for the building of the Anzac Hall are housed there.
