סמל המועצה לשימור אתרי מורשת בישראל

גבעת הצבועים
המקום שהיה מרוחק מהמושבה ובעבר היתה בו מחצבה, שימש כמקום אימונים בשדאות ובנשק קל לחברי ה"הגנה".
במלחמת העצמאות, כאשר תנועת הרכב מתל-אביב לירושלים ולדרום עברה דרך ראשון-לציון, הוקם בקרבת מקום מחנה קדמי של הפלמ"ח שהיה אחראי על ליווי השיירות לירושלים.

Hyenas Hill
The place, which was far from the colony and used to have a quarry, served as a training ground for fields and small arms for members of the Haganah.
During the War of Independence, when the movement of vehicles from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and south passed through Rishon Lezion, a front camp of the Palmach was established nearby, which was responsible for accompanying the convoys to Jerusalem.
