Clerks House - The Colony Museum
This building, built in 1885, was one of the first two public buildings in the colony. Initially, the offices of the Barons officials were here, and part of the house was used as a living quarters.
On the second floor you can still see the wide wooden boards of the original wooden floor that was brought from Europe. The building was later used for many purposes: as a home to the colony, as a station for the Jewish community police, as a loan and savings bank, as a local council house and post office.
In the past, a signaling facility has been installed for the surrounding communities. From 1987, the building serves as the Eran Shamir Colony Museum.
