הבית על הגבעה
בית הילדים הראשון נבנה בשנים 1933-4 על ידי חברי וחברות הקבוצה, במטרה לתת לילדים הגנה מכדורים ומיתושים. המבנה בנוי מבטון מזוין ולכן שימש גם כבית ביטחון.
כשקבוצת החלוץ עברה מהרצליה להתיישב בעמק חפר (בוואדי חווארת) נשארו הנשים והילדים בהרצליה. רק לאחר שהשלימו את בנייתו של הבניין הזה עברו גם הילדים והנשים למקום ההתיישבות בעמק חפר.
כיום משמש המבנה כספריה וחדר זיכרון.

The house on the hill
The first children’s home was built in 1933-4 by members of the group, in order to give children protection from bullets and mosquitoes. The building is built of reinforced concrete and therefore also served as a security house.
When the HeChaluts group moved from Herzliya to settle in the Hefer Valley (in Wadi Huwarat), the women and children remained in Herzliya. Only after they completed the construction of this building did the children and women also move to the settlement site in the Hefer Valley.
Today the building serves as a library and memorial room.
