מגדל המים

Translation of the text on the sign:
The symbol of Kibbutz HaOgen

The Water tower
In 1947, with the founding of the kibbutz, the first water tower was built.
The temporary tower was replaced by a permanent tower in its current location, to which water was drawn from two wells and flowed to all corners of the kibbutz.
The three rooms at its foot served as accounting offices.
