On the sign:
סמל המועצה לשימור אתרי מורשת בישראל
סמל גשר הישנה

חדר האוכל של גשר הישנה
המבנה הוקם ב-1924, תוך שימוש באבני בזלת משרידי החאן הקדום. גגו רעפי מרסיי אדומים. מצדדיו צריף מאפיה וצריף מטבח. בקירותיו אשנבי ירי להגנת המקום.
כל חיי החברה והתרבות של "משק גשר" (אחר כך אשדות יעקב), מאז 1924 ושל קיבוץ הנוער העובד גשר שבא במקומם ב-1939, התמקדו כאן. הרס היישוב במלחמת העצמאות פגע גם במבנה זה ושיני הזמן הוסיפו לכרסם בו.
במסגרת עבודות שימור הכרחיות, וכדי לחזק את קירותיו הנוטים ליפול צופו אלה בשכבת בטון פנימית, במקום טיח היסוד המתפורר שהיה בו.

Translation of the text on the sign:
Symbol of the Council for the Preservation of Israeli Heritage Sites
The old Gesher symbol

The dining room of the old Gesher
The building was erected in 1924, using basalt stones from the remains of the ancient Khan. Red Marseille tile roof. On its sides is a bakery shack and a kitchen shack. In its walls are firing portholes for the defense of the place.
The entire social and cultural life of "Meshek Gesher" (later Ashdot Ya’akov), since 1924, and of Kibbutz HaNoar HaOved Gesher, which replaced them in 1939, was focused here. The destruction of the settlement in the War of Independence also damaged this structure and the teeth of time continued to gnaw at it.
As part of necessary conservation works, and to strengthen its walls that tend to fall, they were covered with an inner layer of concrete, instead of the crumbling foundation plaster that was in it.
