בַּיִת 4
מבנה זה הוקם בשנת תש"א (1941). זמן קצר לאחר העלייה לקרקע, כאחד מהבתים הראשונים שנבנו על-ידי קבוצת הבנייה המקומית. מספרו של הבית היה 4 ברצף המבנים ומכאן שמו. בכל בית היו ארבעה חדרים, שדלתותיהם נפתחו אל מרפסת פתוחה משותפת, מחופה בגגון. בקצה המרפסת הותקן כיור קטן עם ברז מים.
המבנה נועד לשמש כמרפאה, ולכן מטעמי ביטחון, קירותיו נבנו מבטון עד גובה החלונות, שלא כשאר המבנים מאותה סידרה, שהיו עשויים לבני סיליקט.
במלחמת העצמאות הובאו אליו נפגעי ההפצצה האווירית בט"ו באייר תש"ח.
החל משנת תשי"ב (1952) שימש הבית כמשרד הנהלת החשבונות. במבנה מאחוריו ישבו מרכז המשק ומזכיר הפנים, וכן היו בו משרד הדואר ותא טלפון ציבורי. בצריף חדר האוכל שעמד מול בית ארבע ובשני המבנים הללו, פעם ליבו של היישוב באותן שנים.

Translation of the text on the sign:

House 4
This building was erected in 1941. Shortly after the ascent to the ground, as one of the first houses built by the local construction group. The number of the house was 4 in the sequence of buildings hence its name. A small sink with a water tap was installed at the end of the balcony.
The building was intended to be used as a clinic, so for security reasons, its walls were built of concrete up to the height of the windows, unlike the other buildings of the same series, which were made of silicate bricks.
During the War of Independence, the victims of the aerial bombardment were brought to it on 15 Iyar 1948.
From 1952, the house served as the accounting office. In the building behind it sat the kibbutz secretary and the interior secretary, as well as the post office and a public telephone booth. In the dining room hut that stood in front of House Four and in these two buildings, was the center of the settlement in those years.
