On the sign:
סמל המועצה לשימור אתרי מורשת בישראל
סמל המועצה האזורית מטה יהודה

בית בן ציון ורג’ינה לוי
נבנה בתחילת שנות העשרים של המאה ה-20.
הבניין נהרס במאורעות תרפ"ט ונבנה מחדש.
הקומה השנייה שימשה למגורים ובקומה התחתונה הייתה רפת. מאוחר יותר הוכשרה גם קומה זו למגורים.
במלחמת השחרור שימשה (הקומה התחתונה) כמועדון ללוחמי החי"ש, שהשתתפו בהגנת היישוב.
במהלך המלחמה, נהרס הבניין שנית ורוב אבניו נבזזו. קומות הקרקע נותרה על תילה אך מהמקומה העליונה נותר רק מילוי הקירות העבה.
בשנים 1950-1951, נאספו האבנים שנבזזו מן הכפר הערבי השכן, והבניין נבנה מחדש על ידי האיכר ובניו.

כיום שוכן בקומה התחתונה מוזיאון המושבה הר-טוב.

שיקום המבנה:
ביצוע: בסיוע המועצה לשימור אתרי מורשת בישראל, המועצה האזורית מטה יהודה, קרן קיימת לישראל.

Translation of the text on the sign:
Symbol of the Council for the Preservation of Israeli Heritage Sites
Emblem of the Mateh Yehuda Regional Council

Beit Ben Zion and Regina Levy
Built in the early 1920s.
The building was destroyed in the events of 1929 and rebuilt.
The second floor was used as a residence and the lower floor was a barn. Later this floor was also prepared for residence.
During the War of Independence, it served (the lower floor) as a club for the Hish fighters, who participated in the defense of the settlement.
During the war, the building was demolished again and most of its stones were looted. The ground floors remained on a mound but from the top floor only the thick wall fill remained.
In 1950-1951, the stones looted from the neighboring Arab village were collected, and the building was rebuilt by the farmer and his sons.

Today, the Hartuv Colony Museum is located on the ground floor.

Restoration of the building:
Execution: With the assistance of the Council for the Preservation of Heritage Sites in Israel, the Mateh Yehuda Regional Council, the Jewish National Fund.
