The Golda Meir House Museum preserves a duplex where Meir lived at 1606 Julian Street in Denver.

Golda Meir, a founding mother of Israel who signed that country’s Declaration of Independence and served as Prime Minister during many of its early crises, spent formative years living in an unassuming brick duplex on Denver’s west side. The house is now a museum, and on Monday it will host a ceremony honoring the people who worked to save it as a historic home.  Lena Fishman is executive director of the Golda Meir House Museum.
