מגדל המים
מגדל המים נבנה בשנת 1934 על ידי חברי וחברות הקבוצה. המגדל הזה הוא מהמגדלים המרובעים הראשונים שנבנו, והוא מכיל 40 מטר קוב.
בראש המגדל נבנה מעקה ובו חרכי ירי וזרקור לצורכי הגנה ותצפית. ממאורעות 1939 ועד אחרי מלחמת השחרור אויש המגדל ביום ובלילה.
עד ראשית 2007 שימש המגדל להספקת מים ליישוב

Water tower
The water tower was built in 1934 by members of the group. This tower is one of the first square towers built, and contains 40 cubic meters.
A railing was built at the top of the tower with firing slits and a searchlight for protection and observation. From the events of 1939 until after the War of Independence, the tower was manned day and night.
Until the beginning of 2007, the tower was used to supply water to the settlement
