On the sign:
תחנת הנוטרים
בריכת המים נבנתה במימון הברון רוטשילד, בשנת תרפ"ב 1922, בראש גבעה חשופה כדי לספק מים למושבה בנימינה ההולכת ונבנית.
תחנת הנוטרים הראשונה שכנה במרתף מלון הולץ, וגג בריכת המים שימש לאיתות מורס ללילה ואיתות שמש ליום.
בשנת 1938 נבנו קירות בין עמודי הבריכה והמקום הפך לתחנת נוטרים ובו מעט נשק, רובה צייד, שולחן ויומן.
מוזיאון תחנת הנוטרים הוקם ביוזמת העמותה לשימור ושיחזור עבר המושבה בנימינה, 1996.

The Guards’ Outpost
(Tahanat Hanotrim)

A raised cistern was built with funds from the Baron de Rothschild in 1922 on the crown of an exposed hill, to supply water to the Binyamina community, which was under construction at the time.
The first outpost of the Guards was in the basement of the Holtz Hotel, but the roof of the reservoir was used for signaling - by Morse code at night, and by reflected sunlight during the day.
In 1938, walls were built to enclose the area between the pillars under the cistern, and the site became a guard outpost with the addition of a few weapons, a hunting rifle, a table and a logbook.
The Guard Station Museum was established at the initiative of the Binyamina Preservation & Restoration Society in 1996.
