הבאר הראשונה
בשנת 1936, עם העלייה על הקרקע, נחפרה הבאר בעבודת ידיים קשה. תוך זמן קצר התברר שכמות המים בבאר מעטה והמושב פנה למפעל המים בכפר סבא בבקשה לספק מים למושב. לאחר סגירת הבאר, שימש המבנה למטרות שונות.

בנובמבר 1945, כאשר הגיעו למושב מעפילים מאניית המעפילים "ברל כצנלסון", היה מבנה הבאר "תחנה לקליטת עולים". כאן הם קיבלו בגדי "אתא", נעליים וכובע. כאן הם הצטלמו לקבלת תעודת זיהוי ישראלית.

בשנים 1946-1949 שימש המקום כמחסן דשנים.

בשנת 1949, כשנבנתה הרחבה למושב, נפתחה במקום הצרכנייה הראשונה, שפעלה עד 1952.

בשנות החמישים שימש המקום למגורים של הורי חברים, שהגיעו עם ההרחבה.

בהמשך שימש המקום כמחסן ציוד של פעילות הנוער.

כיום, משמש המבנה כמוזיאון המתעד ומשחזר את אורח החיים בראשית ימיו של המושב.

The first well
In 1936, with the ascent to the ground, the well was dug by hand. It soon became clear that the amount of water in the well was low and the moshav applied to the water plant in Kfar Saba to supply water to the moshav. After the well was closed, the building was used for various purposes.

In November 1945, when Ma’apilim arrived to the Moshav from the illegal immigration ship "Berl Katzenelson", the well’s structure was a "station for the absorption of immigrants." Here they were given "Ata" clothes, shoes and a hat. Here they were photographed receiving an Israeli ID card.

In the years 1946-1949 the place served as a fertilizer warehouse.

In 1949, when an extension to the moshav was built, the first grocery store was opened on the site, which operated until 1952.

In the 1950s the place was used as a residence by the parents of members, who came with the extension.

Later, the place served as an equipment warehouse for youth activities.

Today, the building serves as a museum that documents and recreates the lifestyle of the early days of the moshav.
