The Annandale Community Centre – was the former purpose-built Council Chambers constructed following Annandale's move to become an independent municipality in 1899. The building represents the growth and development of the local area and continued to be a focus of municipal administration and local community through the early part of the 20th century until 1948 when Annandale was re-absorbed into the Leichhardt local government area.
