The symbol of the Haganah organization Yarkona - border settlement
Moshav Yarkona was founded in 1932.
By families of pioneers, members of the Haganah gathered from all over the country.
During the events of 1936-1939, the settlement withstood shooting attacks and attempts by Arab intruders.
At the border line, firing positions were set up to defend the settlement, manned at night by the members.
A Morse station was built on the secretariat building, linking the settlement with the headquarters in Raanana.
The signal operators were from the boys of the moshav, on this hill there was a slick where the weapons of the settlement were hidden.
In the farmyard of Avraham and Boma Shimion, a national "slick" and an underground weapons repair workshop were established - the only one established on a private estate, while taking a personal life risk.
