בית הקומותיים - בית ביטחון
בית הביטחון נבנה בשנת 1929.
בקומת הקרקע גרו הילדים ובקומה העליונה חברים רווקים. בהמשך, הוסבה גם קומה זו למגורי כל ילדי הקבוץ.
הגג שימש כעמדה לתצפיתנים ולקשר עם הסביבה בימי המאורעות.
בתחילת שנות ה-40 הפכה הקומה התחתונה לגן ילדים, והקומה השנייה - למגוריהם. לבניין נוסף גם מטבח לילדים.
בין השנים 1957-1976 הוסב המבנה למחסן הבגדים והמתפרה.
משנת 1976 - משמש הבניין כספריה, חדר-עיון וחדר לתקשורת הפנים של הקבוץ.

The two-story house - a security house
The security house was built in 1929.
The children lived on the ground floor and single members lived on the top floor. Later, this floor was also converted into a residence for all the children of the kibbutz.
The roof served as a stand for observers and served as a means of communication with the environment during the days of the events.
In the early 1940s, the lower floor became a kindergarten, and the second floor - their residence. The building also has a kitchen for children.
Between the years 1957-1976, the building was converted into a clothing store and sewing shop.
Since 1976 - the building has been used as a library, study room and room for the kibbutz’s internal communication.
