Significance: Originally designed in 1906 as a printing establishment and store building by Henry J. Blauvelt for A. Zichtl & Co., the building housed printing-related concerns through the 1930s. The Crown Bar & Grill was in this location for over 20 years. The building is an unusual example of a small industrial building inserted into a developed urban downtown. 1005 E Street, NW contributes to the Pennsylvania Avenue National Historic Site.
