The Avalon Annex was added in 1949 to the Avalon Theater and Avalon Office complex, extending along Franklin Street. It housed a number of commercial establishments, including Christensen Radio and Fox’s clothing store. It was the first home of the Hands on Children’s museum in the 1990s, and currently (2017) houses a pizza parlor. On the north side of the building is a large mural. The building has recently (2016) been added to the Olympia Heritage register.
