בית יוליוס ג’ייקובס - בית ראשי הממשלה
המבנה הייחודי נבנה ב-1933 עבור יוליוס ג’ייקובס, לימים סגן מושל ירושלים. המבנה תוכנן על ידי האדריכל בנימין צ’ייקין, ומשלב מספר מוטיבים אדריכליים: החזית המזרחית בסגנון קלאסי ים-תיכוני והחזית הדרומית בסגנון מודרני ויש זווית. הבניין אינו מחופה אבן. ג’ייקובס נהרג ב-1946 בפיצוץ מלון המלך דוד והמבנה הוסב לפעילות ציבורית, תחילה בשימוש הסוכנות היהודית ומ-1950 שימש הבית כמעון ראש הממשלה. במשך השנים התגוררו במקום ראשי הממשלה דוד בן-גוריון, לוי אשכול וגולדה מאיר.
ב-1974 הועתק מעון ראש הממשלה אל בית אגיון, וב-1977 המבנה יועד לפעילות יד לוי אשכול. בית לוי אשכול החל לפעול במקום ב-2016, במסגרת מיזם משותף בין יד לוי אשכול והחברה להגנת הטבע, ובתמיכת משרד ירושלים ומורשת.

Jacobs’ House - The Prime Ministers’ Residence
The unique building was constructed in 1933 as the home of Julius Jacobs, Deputy Governor of the Jerusalem District. The building was designed by architect Benjamin Chaikin and combines several architectural motives: The eastern front in classic Mediterranean and the southern front in a modern straight-angled style. The building is not covered in stone.
Following Jacobs’ death at the King David Hotel bombing in 1946, the residence was used by the Jewish Agency and, from 1950 as the Prime Ministers Residence, housing prime ministers David Ben-Gurion, Levi Eshkol and Golda Meir.
In 1974 the Prime Ministers’ Residence relocated to Agion House. The vacated building was then designated for Yad Levi Eshkol organization. The house and Levi Eshkol Visitors’ Center were opened in 2016, as a joint initiative of Yad Levi Eshkol and the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel, with the support of the Ministry of Jerusalem and Heritage.
