Inmigrants' Hotel - Shelter.
The first Russian Jewish families stayed here until they were transported to the fields allotted to them by the J.C.A, a colonization organization, in the surroundings of Domínguez. This hundred-year old shed, still has wooden floors and a zinc plate structure. The shed and the railroad station were the only structures existing at the time the settlers arrived. There are three different versions explaining the origins of this Shed-Hotel: some say it was a grain warehouse, others claim it was a shed for keeping horses and finally, it is also said that it was a shed for railroad workers.
Regional Museum and Historical Archive of the Colonies.
The Museum was founded on October 19, 1985 in order to preserve the valuable objects and documents of the Jewish agricultural colonies in the area and the unique institutions of this town, and therefore, prevent this invaluable historical heritage from vanishing.
In the Museum, visitors may get a glimpse of the settlers’ lifestyle through their valuable objects, documents and pictures which are displayed in different sections and classified by subject; namely: The early settlement, daily life, religion, education, the hospital and the pharmacy, life in town, including an area with photographs and brief biographies of settlers and descendents who became relevant personalities.
Moreover, the Archive treasures the most thorough and complete records of Jewish immigration and settlement in Argentina. It is also a constant source of information for both local and foreign scholars.
