A rich history in the heart of Herrin
The Annex Building, built in 1912, is at the very heart of Herrin, Illinois’ thriving downtown on Park Avenue. The former Annex Movie Theater was converted into a bakery café and opened on Halloween 2011. The Annex Coffee & Deli is committed to delivering the best coffee house/bakery café experience in a clean and stylish environment which recalls the glory days of the historic building in which it is housed.
A beautiful building with 100+ years of history
The Annex Building, built 1912, was at its peak of popularity in the 1940’s when it housed the Annex Movie Theater and the Dreamland Ballroom on the second floor. Over the years, the Annex Building has been home to many businesses including: a drug store, the police station, city hall, a corner deli, a florist, and various retail shops.
In 1997, the Annex Building was purchased by Dr. Ted Van Acker and Dr. Barry Vesciglio, owners of Southern Illinois Properties. The majority of the building was renovated in 1998 and is home to the flagship office of Southern Illinois Dermatology, the largest dermatology practice in the Southern Illinois region. The lower level to the north, houses DermaCare Body Boutique.
