Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 14, 1990):
Milwaukee's Fourth Street School is the only surviving structure in America associated with Mrs. Golda Meir (1898-1978), who from 1967 to 1974 was Prime Minister of Israel. Fleeing the pogroms of their native Russia, Mrs. Meir's family came to this city and settled on Walnut Street. In 1906, the young Golda attended the Fourth Street School, where she learned English and exhibited a talent for leadership; in 1912, she graduated valeditorian. The school continues to serve the students of Milwaukee.
