Local Council House
In this place stood a building that was the second home of the local Holon council (the first stood at 16 Arlozorov St.). The area on which the council house stood belonged to Shimon Yavetz, one of the owners of Agrobank Bank.
Shimon Yavetz buildon his area a one-story residence building, and on the parcel of land next to the house, planted an orange grove to produce juice concentrates.
Following the establishment of the local council, in June 1940, the head of the council, Dr. Haim Kugel, searched for a proper building to house the council offices, his eyes "hunted" the empty building of Simon Yavetz, that was ready to hand over the house for council use and public welfare, for free.
In 1953, the cornerstone was laid to the Town Hall at 58 Weizman Street and the building was transferred to the Municipality for use. In the 1980s, another building was built on the same area, which is now used as a library.
