This building was originally the Foursquare Gospel church of Olympia, the denomination founded by Aimee Semple McPherson. It was built in 1939 using donated materials and labor, and was in an Ecclesiastical design with Craftsmen style elements. In later years it was used as the home of the Olympia Film Society, a recording studio, and a music hall. The building burned down in 2014.
