From Annala's family, the farm's ownership transferred to the municipality in the 1930s. Back then, the Town Office and other administrative agencies like public services were moved into Annala during the war years. The Municipality Middle School started in Annala at the beginning of 1960s.

Home Stead Advisor Kalle Tirilä was responsible for Annala's item collection and transferral of the buildings at the starting decades. His meritorious work was continued by Annikki Halunen. Between 2002-2004, Into the area was built by the order of FM Inga Petäjäsoja self articulated exhibitions.

During 2005-2006 northern Ostrobothnia's museum invested into Annala's buildings. In addition to the investment, the building's condition and culture-historical value were evaluated. As a result of the investment, Annala has been classified as a nationally significant destination.
