Batsheva Smolnik with Ben-Zion Jr. Smolnik House
The Smolnik House is the only building from the first houses that remains intact. The house was built during the first construction cycle in 1896. The father of the family, Avraham Smolnik, came from Riga, Russia, with his wife, son and daughter-in-law and their three children in 1891. They lived in Khan for six years and then built their house with the first houses built under the guise of cowsheds, similar to the Kotler house.
The building style was modest - two rooms and an annex kitchenette from the outside.
The house was built of kurkar stones with external reinforcement of belts. The beveled roof with Marseille tiles. The front door faced the courtyard and a barn was built next to the house.
After his parents died of fever, Zelig Jr. continued to work in agriculture and made a living all his life from the dairy farm. Zelig Smolnik’s barn was the last to operate in the center of Hadera until the 1960s. Upon his death, the barn was liquidated.
In the 80s when a large apartment house was built near it, the house was restored by the developer.
