The Ayala House (Columbus) and Avraham Lichtenstein were built in the early 1920s and served at various times as a gathering place for various public activities. The house also served as a temporary hostel for a Betar recruitment company, which arrived as reinforcements for the settlers in the agricultural work and also for the preservation of the settlement.
Avraham Lichtenstein arrived in Beer Yaakov in 1937 at the head of the Betar company. In 1939 he was added to the Moshava committee and was active in all areas of public activity. In 1949, the first meeting of the elected local council was held in this house, at which Avraham was elected head of the council, and he served in that position for more than 20 years, alternately, until 1973.
Ayala was a public activist in the colony, co-founded the Peoples House and Library, and served as chair of the "Committee for Soldiers" branch in the colony. Ayala died in 1978, and in 1979 the local council decided to commemorate her memory by naming the colonys main street.
