In 1914, the building was purchased by Baron Rothschild, to complete the ownership of the "Great Square" between the Hadera and Zichron Yaacov colonies. The building was inhabited by the "Gideons", members of Nili from Bnei Zichron Yaacov, and was used to train farmers and a hostel for workers in development and infrastructure work, paving roads and draining swamps.
In the years 1919-1925, there was a training and formation center for the "Givat Binyamin" settlement nucleus, for the establishment of the Binyamina colony.
In the years 1940-1946, the beginning of the Betar settlement in the transition to "Nahalat Jabotinsky", served as a training base and a school for Irgun commanders.
