בית הראשונים
נחנך בתרס"ז - 1907
כאן הוקם המרכז הקהילתי הראשון של נס-ציונה. שימש באחת כבית-הספר, בית-הכנסת, בית ועד המושבה ומקום התכנסות לקהילה הקטנה בכל מגוון פעילותה. בהיות הבית שלמרגלות הגבעה מצודתה של נס-ציונה, שימש כמפקדת "ההגנה" ומקום ריכוז בטחוני לאוכלוסיה. נשק נטמן והוחבא (בתוך "סליק") בבית ובחצר.
מאז 1907 התרכזה בבית כל הפעילות הציבורית עד 1962 עת עברה המועצה המקומית למעונה החדש והבית עמד נטוש מספר שנים.
בשנת 1977 הוחל בשיקום ושיחזור הבית בצורתו המקורית, כדי להקים בו מוזיאון הנצחה למיסדים הראשונים.

Translation of the text on the sign:
The logo of The Founders house of Ness Ziona
The emblem of the city of Ness Ziona

Founders House
Inaugurated in 1907
This is where the first community center of Ness Ziona was established. At the same time, the house served as the school, the synagogue, the committee home and a gathering place for the small community in all its activities. Being the home at the foot of the hill from the Nes Ziona fortress, it served as the Haganah’s headquarters and a security concentration place for the population. Weaponed and concealed weapons (inside "Slick") at home and in the yard.
Since 1907 all public activity was concentrated in the house until 1962 when the local council moved to the new residence and the house was abandoned for several years.
In 1977, the house was rebuilt and restored in its original form, to erect a memorial museum for its first foundations.
