The Well House
The Well House is a remnant from the Pardes Hagdud Farm, established in 1928 by members of Jewish Legions. The farm and its orchards were used as a base for Hagana activities until Israel won its independence. At the end of the 1940s the farm area was annexed to the municipality of Netanya. The refurbished well, where visitors can see the restored water pump, is a testimonial to Netanya’s beginnings. One can see the restored water pump and enjoy a local exhibition.
