בית מורשת יהדות תימן ובית "יד לבנים"
המבנה הזה הוא שריד מבסיס חיל האוויר הבריטי, שפעל כאן בשנות הארבעים של המאה העשרים.
בשנים 1949-1951 הוכשר המחנה הבריטי הנטוש לקליטת העולים שהגיעו מתימן במבצע "על כנפי נשרים". באותה תקופה שימש המבנה כבית תינוקות, בהנהלת ויצ"ו.

מאז הקמת היישוב היה במבנה בית ספר לבנות, הייתה בו תחנה לכיבוי אש וכן שימש כמחסן של הרשות המקומית.

כיום שוכן במבנה "בית מורשת יהדות תימן" ובחלקו האחר - בית "יד לבנים".

The sign shape is square but its head is designed according to the silhouette of the old building of the Gymnasia Herzliya, which serves as a logo of the Council for the Preservation of Heritage Sites in Israel

Yemenite Jewish Heritage House and Yad Labanim House
This building is a remnant of the British Air Force base, which operated here in the 1940s.
From 1949 to 1951, the abandoned British camp served the reception of immigrants who arrived from Yemen during Operation Eagle’s Wings. At that time, the building served as a nursery, under the management of WIZO.

Since the establishment of the settlement it was a girls’ school building, it has had a fire station and also served as a storehouse of the local authority.

Today it is housed in the "Yemenite Jewish Heritage" building and in the other part - the "Yad Labanim " house.
