בשעות הבוקר שימש האולם הגדול - גן ילדים ובשעות האחרות התקיימו בו אסיפות כלליות ואירועים שונים למען הציבור.
באולםזה היה גם הרדיו הראשון שבכפר, בגלל המצב הביטחוני הבית נבנה מבטון.
בשני החדרים הצמודים אליו היו המזכירות וחדר הנשק. בראשית שנות ה-60 עבר גן הילדים לביל"ו הרחבה. במשך השנים היו בבית זה, מרפאה, ספריה, ומועדון הנוער.
החל משנת 1998 נמצא בבית זה ארכיון הכפר.

The public house
The house was built in 1934.
In the morning the large hall was used as a kindergarten and during the other hours general meetings and various events were held for the public.
The hall also had the first radio in the village, because of the security situation the house was built of concrete.
In the two adjoining rooms were the secretary and the armory. In the early 1960s, the kindergarten moved to an expanded Bilu. Over the years, there was a clinic, a library, and a youth club in this house.
Since 1998, the village archive has been housed in this house.
