אכסניית בנימין (יד שרה)
בשנת 1891 הקימה החברה הארץ ישראלית הרוסית הפרבוסלבית הקיסרית אכסניה לצלייניות. [את] המבנה הזה, כמו את בית החולים מאיר רוטשילד הסמוך, תכנן האדריכל אלכסיי פרנגיה, ששמו מופיע על שער הבניין. בין השנים 1976-2000 פעלמה במקום אגודת יד שרה. המבנה, שהיה מיועד להריסה בתכנית להרחבת הרחוב, ניצל לאחר מאבק ציבורי ממושך של גופי השימור.

THE BENJAMIN HOSTEL (YAD SARAH)
In 1891, the Imperial Russian Orthodox Palestine Society built a hostel for pilgrims. On the gate of the building you can see the name of its architect, Alexei Franghia.

The Yad Sarah organization operated out of the building from 1976 to 2000. The building was slated for demolition, but was saved thanks to a public battle waged by preservation groups.
