בית יד לבנים - בית הפקידות

הבית (משמאל, בחלקו הדרומי של המתחם) נבנה בסביבות שנת תרנ"ד, 1894. מבנה זה שהיה הגדול והמפואר ביותר במושבה, שימש למגורי פקיד הברון, חיים חזן, וכמרכז אדמיניסטרטיבי של הנהלת המושבות. בשנת תרנ"ט, 1898, התארך בבית בנימין זאב הרצל במסגרת ביקורו בארץ ישראל.
במהלך המאה ה-20 שכנו בבית משרדי פיק"א ומשרדי הנהלת היקבים. במקום התגוררו גם מנהלי היקב, זאב גלוסקין ויעקב שפירא.
כיום משמשים הבית והמבנים שלידו כבית יד-לבנים.
