עיריית כפר סבא
בשנת 1894 החל נוח קרלינסקי ברכישת אדמות היישוב כפר סבא. ב-1900 נמכרה האדמה לחברת יק"א והברון רוטשילד, וב-1903 נמכרו חלקות - חלקות לאיכרי פתח-תקוה, לתושבי ירושלים ולאנשי העלייה השנייה.
בכסף שקיבלה יק"א עבור האדמה נחפרה באר שעומקה 18 מ, ונבנה הבית הציבורי - ה"חאן".
הבית נבנה ב-1906 על ידי וועד המושבה, בתגובה לדרישת הפועלים שבאו מפתח תקווה לעבוד בכפר סבא ושהתגוררו עד אז בצריף עץ רעוע, ללא מקור מים קרוב.
בבניין האבן החדש שהוקם היו חמישה חדרים. שניים לאנשים ושלושה לבהמות, מבין חדרי המגורים ניתן האחד לפועלים, ואילו השני אוכלס ע-ידי המשפחה שטיפלה בהם.
ליד הבאר, שנחפרה סמוך לבית, נבנתה שוקת להשקיית הבהמות ומסביב ניטעו אקליפטוסים.
בשנת 1923 הפך ה"חאן" לבית הוועד, בתור המבנה הציבורי הראשון בכפר סבא שימש הבית גם כבית-ספר, כמקווה, ספרייה, סנדלרייה, מטה ה"הגנה" ואף כבית המועצה המקומית, שהוכרזה בשנת 1939.
ב-1962 הוכרזה כפר סבא לעיר.

Translation of the text on the sign:
Symbol of the Council for the Preservation of Israeli Heritage Sites
Kfar Saba city emblem

Municipality of Kfar Saba
The Khan
In 1894 Noah Karlinsky began purchasing the lands of Kfar Saba. In 1900, the land was sold to YAC and Baron Rothschild, and in 1903 plots were sold - plots to Petah Tikva farmers, residents of Jerusalem and other immigrants.
With the money received by the YAC for the land, a well 18 inches deep was excavated and the public house - the "Khan" was built.
The house was built in 1906 by the Colony Committee, in response to the demand of the workers who came from Petah Tikva to work in Kfar Saba and who had until then lived in a dilapidated wooden hut, without a nearby water source.
The newly erected stone building had five rooms. Two for people and three for animals, one of the living rooms was given to the workers, while the other was occupied by the family who cared for them.
At the well, which was excavated near the house, a trough for watering the animals was erected and around it were planted eucalyptus.
In 1923, the "Khan" became a committee house, as the first public building in Kfar Saba, the house also served as a school, as a mikveh, a library, a shoemaker’s office, the Haganah headquarters and even as a local council house, declared in 1939.
In 1962, Kfar Saba was declared a city.
