הבאר הראשונה - באר האנטיליה
הבאר הראשונה נחפרה, כנראה, בשנת 1884, עם בניית הבתים הראשונים של המושבה. עומקה המקורי היה 30 מטרים, והיו עליה שתי אנטיליות. האנטיליות המקוריות היו עשויות מעץ, והפעילו אותן בהמות. את המים הובילו אל הבתים בידי אדם או על גב בהמה. בעקבות ההפעלה של מערכת שאיבה ממונעת בבאר השנייה, נעזבה הבאר ונסתמה, המבנה והמתקנים שעליה נהרסו, ומקומה המדויק נשכח. נשארה רק ברכת האגירה.
המבנה שעל הבאר ומתקן האנטיליה שוחזרו בשנת 1984 ובמהלך השחזור התגלתה הבאר המקורית. הבאר מופעלת על ידי מוזיאון המושבה.

The Antillean well is a well with an ancient water pumping system, a wheel and a rail with buckets of water on it. As soon as the bucket reaches the top of the rail it flips over and the water in it spills out.

Such a well is also located in Binyamina Click for sign's details

The first well - the Antillean well
The first well was probably excavated in 1884, with the construction of the first houses of the colony. Its original depth was 30 meters, and there were two Antilleans on it. The original Antilleans were made of wood, and operated by animals. The water was carried to the houses by man or on the back of an animal. Following the operation of a motorized pumping system in the second well, the well was abandoned and clogged, the structure and facilities on which it was demolished, and its exact location forgotten. Only the storage blessing remains.
The structure on the well and the Antillean facility were restored in 1984 and during the restoration the original well was discovered. The well is operated by the Colony Museum.
