On the sign:
שכונת הבולגרים

בית בודד בקצה המערבי של המושבה, נבנה בשנת 1933 ע"י אברהם יוסף אברמוב (בוקו) יליד סופיה בולגריה שעלה לארץ ב-1931.
במאורעות 1936-39 שימש הבית את הנוטרים (גפירים) כעמדה קדמית להגנת המושבה מפני פורעים ערבים.
במלחמת השחרור 1948, שימש כמחסן נשק וכנקודת יציאה לשמירה על חלקה המערבי של המושבה.

Translation of the text on the sign:
Bulgarians neighborhood

A lonely house on the western edge of the Moshava, built in 1933 by Avraham Yosef Abramov (Boko), born in Sofia, Bulgaria, who immigrated to Israel in 1931.
In the events of 1936-39, the house served the guards as a forward position to protect the colony from Arab rioters.
During the 1948 War of Independence, it served as a weapons depot and as an exit point for the preservation of the western part of the settlement.
