The Kanner House
[Image of the Kanner House]

The house was built in the "colonial" style in 1900 by Yaakov Kanner, a farmer, blacksmith and chairman of the Village Committee. Later, the house served as Rishon Le-Zion’s First-Aid Clinic ("Magen David Adom") and the yard was used by the Fire Brigade (1940-1985). Prior to the establishment of the State of Israel the "Hagana" defense forces used the house as one of its headquarters and arms cache. During the War of Independence the basement was converted into an emergency hospital.
