The emblem of the city of Hadera Feinberg House
The Rishonim (Founders) House, built on the southern border of the Hadera colony in 1896, is today called the Feinberg House.
Israel Feinberg, one of the first settlers in Hadera, was one of the first four guards that Joshua Hankin, the savior of the lands, sent to Hadera to demonstrate ownership of the land purchased in 1890.
The house served as a center for meetings of the heads of the settlement, at the time.
During the events of 1921, thousands of Arab rioters invaded the colony, infiltrated the Feinberg House, looted it and burned the northern wing. The residents of Hadera organized in self-defense, led by one of the Hebrew workers who had military experience, and repulsed the attack.
The basement of the renovated house was used for "Hagana" training in the 1940s.
The building was restored in 2008 by the Hadera Development Company and the Council for the Preservation of Israeli Heritage Sites.
