גשר מרטין
הגשר הוקם בשנת 1954 על ידי מרטין קלינמן וחברים נוספים, במקום גשר אחר שקרס בשיטפון. כתוצאה מהצפת מי הירדן. בנייתו התבססה על דופן של גשר ביילי (המצאה בריטית) שנתרם על ידי חיל ההנדסה.
הגשר שימש למעבר עובדים אל השטחים החקלאיים מעברו השני של הירדן - המטע, הכרם, גן הירק ושדות הפלחה והשלחין.
הגשר קרס בשנות ה-70 ונחשף בשנת 2015 כפרויקט בר מצווה של ילדי הקיבוץ.

Martin Bridge
The bridge was built in 1954 by Martin Kleinman and other friends, in place of another bridge that collapsed in a flood. As a result of the flooding of the Jordan. Its construction was based on the wall of the Bailey Bridge (a British invention) donated by the Corps of Engineers.
The bridge was used for the passage of workers to the agricultural areas on the other side of the Jordan - the plantation, the vineyard, the vegetable garden and the plowed and irrigated fields.
The bridge collapsed in the 1970s and was revealed in 2015 as a bar mitzvah project for the children of the kibbutz.
