On the sign:
סמל המועצה לשימור אתרי מורשת בישראל
סמל ההגנה
סמל מועצה מקומית כפר שמריהו

בית לוין
הבית נקרא על שמו של שמריהו לוין.
עקב מיקומו על גבעה במרכז הכפר ובשל גודלו עלול היה הבניין לשמש מטרה נוחה לירי מצד פורעים ערבים ולכן נבנה מבטון מזוין.
הבית שימש לקורסים וכנסים של ה"ההגנה", בעיקר בתקופת מלחמת השחרור, וכן כתחנת מעבר למעפילים.

Levin House
The house is named after Shmaryahu Levin.
Due to its location on a hill in the center of the village and because of its size the building could have been a convenient target for shooting by Arab rioters and therefore was built of reinforced concrete.
The house was used for the Haganah courses and conferences, especially during the War of Independence, and as a transit station for illegal immigrants.
