Built by William T. Pickrell, this building was originally used to sell agricultural implements. Other early businesses at this address included a millinery, barber shop, photography studio, billiard hall, restaurant, confectionary, jeweler and tobacco store. Attorney, real estate, insurance, abstract and title offices were also in this building. The Bijou was the first movie theater in 1905. It later became the Crystal Theatre which partially burned in 1917 and was closed in 1929. In 1937 the building was remodeled in an art deco style as the Plaza Theatre and in 2006 it was renovated as the Crystal Plaza Theatre.

A contributing building to the Historic Ottawa Central Business District placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.
