: Courtyard of Mogilovsky (Magali)
The Mogilowski family farm was built on this site before the First World War.
During the war, the farmyard served as a shelter for workers from the colony and deportees from Tel Aviv.
In the courtyard buildings was a "slick" for weapons "purchased" from the Turkish warehouses by the "guard" and the "gymnasiums".
From here the weapons were transferred to the colonies of Samaria and the Galilee.
This activity continued even during the British Mandate Government.
Their son, Yitzhak Magali, who served in the "Hebrew Battalion", was among the weapons procurement activists.
Together with teacher Eliyahu Yarkoni, he planned the defense of Petah Tikva in 1941.
He later moved to Tel Aviv and was one of the commanders of the Haganah there.
