ירקונה - ישוב ספר
מושב ירקונה נוסד ב -1932.
על ידי משפחות של חלוצים, חברי ה"הגנה" שיאספו מכל רחבי הארץ.
במאורעות 1936-1939 עמד הישוב בהתקפות ירי ובניסיונות חדירה של ערבים.
בקו הגבול הוקמו עמדות ירי להגנת הישוב, שאויישו בלילות על ידי החברים.
על בנין המזכירות הוקמה תחנת מורס שקישרה את הישוב עם המפקדה ברעננה.
הקשרים היו מנערי המושב, בגבעה זו היה סליק שבו הוסתרו כלי הנשק של הישוב.
בחצר משקם של אברהם ובומה שמיון הוקם "סליק" ארצי ובית מלאכה תת-קרקעי לתיקון נשק - היחידי שהוקם בנחלה פרטית, תוך נטילת סיכון חיים אישי.

The sign shape is rectangular but its head is designed according to the silhouette of the old building of the Gymnasia Herzliya, which serves as a logo of the Council for the Preservation of Heritage Sites in Israel

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.
