הסילו - ממגורת התבואות הראשונה
בשנת תרצ"א (1931) נבנה הסילו, כאשר הזיפזיף לבניין הובא באורחות גמלים.
במגדל הסילו אחסנו את התבואה שעד אז נאגרה בשקים בבניין הבאר הראשונה.
בשנת תשי"ז (1957) נבנה סילו חדש ובמבנה הישן פעלה כריכיית ספרים.
שנים רבות ניצבה בראשו של בניין הסילו החנוכייה של הקיבוץ, ובימי חג הניפו דגלים מעל גג הבניין, עד שהעצים בחצר גדלו וצמרתם הסתירה את ראש המגדל.

The emblem of Kibbutz Gan Shmuel

The silo - the first grain silo
In 1931, the silo was built, when the plumage for the building was brought by camels.
In the silo tower the grain was stored that had been previously stored in sacks in the first well building.
In 1957, a new silo was built and the old building was used for bookbinding operation.
For many years a Menorah stood at the head of the silo, and on holiday days waved flags over the roof of the building, until the trees in the yard grew and their tops hid the top of the tower.
