בית-ספר פיק"א
בבית זה שנבנה בסוף המאה ה-19 שכן בית-ספר פיק"א.
הבית, שהיה בן קומה אחת וגג שטוח, שימש בראשיתו כבית מגורים.
ב-1902 פעל בו גן הילדים הראשון במושבה שהפך לימים ל"בית ספר לבנות".
בתרס"ה (1905), החל דוד חיון לנהל כאן את בית-ספר לבנים שנוסד בידי פקידות הברון בתרמ"ה (1885).

ב-1907 נבנתה קומה שניה ובבנין המחודש יסד דוד חיון את "בית הספר המעורב" אותו ניהל במשך 34 שנים. בית הספר ריכז תחתיו את כל פעילות התרבות במושבה מאז היווסדו ועד מלחמת העולם הראשונה.

ב-1974 עבר בית הספר למשכנו הנוכחי ברחוב ביל"ו. הספריה העירונית נכנסה לבנין זה והיתה בו עד 1967.

במקביל פעילות הספריה, אכלסה מחלקת הטאבו של העיר את קומת הקרקע של הבנין החל מ-1958 ועד 1999. מאז לא אוכלס המבנה.
בנין בית ספר פיק"א מיועד לשמש כמוזיאון לתולדות פתח-תקוה.

PIKA School
This house, which was built in the late 19th century, was home to the PIKA school.
The house, which was one story and a flat roof, was originally used as a residence building.
In 1902, it was the first kindergarten in the colony that later became a "girls’ school."
In 1905, David Hayon began running a boys’ school here founded by the Baron’s clerks in 1885.

In 1907, a second floor was built and David Hayon founded the "mixed school" which he ran for 34 years. The school has organized all the cultural activities in the colony from its inception until World War I.

In 1974 the school moved to our current residence on Bilu Street. The municipal library entered this building and remained there until 1967.

At the same time as the library’s activities, the city’s taboo department occupied the ground floor of the building from 1958 to 1999. Since then, the building has not been occupied.
The PIKA school building is intended to serve as a museum for the history of Petah Tikva.
