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 Maapilim arrived to the Moshav from the illegal immigration ship "Berl Katzenelson", the wells 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.
