On the sign:
סמל המועצה לשימור אתרי מורשת בישראל
סמל העיר פתח תקווה

חצר דניאל ליפשיץ
דניאל ליפשיץ, שכינויו היה "דאנה", היה מראשוני המתיישבים הביאליסטוקאים, שהצטרפו בשנת 1883 ליוצאי פתח תקוה ביהודיה ועלו כעבור זמן להתיישבות במושבה.
הוא היה מהנדס נודע ואיש אשכולות.
בין המבנים החשובים שתכנן במושבה היה בית הכנסת הגדול הניצב בהמשך רחוב חובבי ציון.
משפחת ליפשיץ גידלה זחלים לתעשיית המשי, ובמרתף המבנה שעמד בחצר המשק גודלו והוחזקו הזחלים.
כן נטעו עצי הדר כרם גפנים ומטע שקדים.
המתחם כלל מבנה שפונה לחזית הרחוב, ובו קשת שתמכה את הבניין ושימשה מעבר לחצר הגדולה. קשת זו היא היחידה בסוגה בחצרות האיכרים של מושבות יהודה, שנותרו מתקופת העלייה הראשונה.
בחצר ניצב מבנה נוסף בן שתי קומות, הבנוי אבני כורכר. המבנה הזה ניבנה כבית יתומים אך שימש כמלון וחדריו הושכרו לחסרי דיור במושבה.

Translation of the text on the sign:
Symbol of the Council for the Preservation of Israeli Heritage Sites
The emblem of the city of Petah Tikva

Yard of Daniel Lifshitz
Daniel Lifshitz, nicknamed "Dana", was one of the first Bialystok settlers to join the people of Petah Tikva in Judea in 1883 and later immigrated to settle in the colony.
He was a renowned engineer and a man with knowledge in many fields.
Among the important buildings he designed in the colony was the Great Synagogue located further down Hovevei Zion Street.
The Lifshitz family raised larvae for the silk industry, and in the basement of the building that stood in the farm yard, the larvae were raised and kept.
Citrus trees, vineyards and almond groves were also planted.
The complex included a building facing the front of the street, with an arch that supported the building and was used beyond the large courtyard. This arch is the only one of its kind in the courtyards of the peasants of the Judean colonies, left over from the period of the first aliyah.
In the courtyard stands another two-story building, built of kurkar stones. This building was built as an orphanage but served as a hotel and its rooms were rented to the homeless in the colony.
