The building was built in the 1950s as a "HaMagen House (house of defense)" by the local council and organization of "Haganah" members in Raanana. The organization was very active in protecting the place and the community in Israel. In one of its two rooms, members of the colony who perished in the Israeli wars were commemorated, and on the front of the Beit HaMagen plaza stands a monument with the names of the fallen, engraved on the monument:
Later, the house, with the addition of rooms added to it, served as the colonys first high school, until it was moved to the building on Ostrovsky Street in the academic year of 1963 (1.9.1963).
Today it serves as "the central youth house".
