Givat Hen The Water Tower
With the establishment of the moshav, the water tower was erected at the highest point in the moshav area.
The water pool received its water from well A and well B, and served as the illegal "swimming pool" of the moshav youth.
The boys used to climb it at night with the help of a ladder that was not moved from the place, due to the adults’ fear for the fate of the children.
The "brave" used to walk on the sides of the tower ...
In the 1940s, a wooden tower 6 m high was erected on the site, which was used for signaling purposes between the Haganah stations in the various Sharon settlements.
A projector was placed on the tower, which was a source of light on the entire environment.
On the lower floor of the water tower, the mythological grocery store of Givat Hen operated.
The water tower has become one of the visual symbols of Givat Hen.
