Original Western Pilgrim House, Haifa

Original Western Pilgrim House, Haifa

The original Western Pilgrim House, located at Haparsim (Persian) Street, was used as a Pilgrim House for members of the Bahá'í Faith of Western origin, who came here in the early years of the 20th Century. It was later replaced by the the new Western Pilgrim House on 10 Haparsim Street. This house is currently part of the Bahá'í World Centre. While it was originally rented to serve as a Pilgrim House, the house was then bought by `Abdu'l-Bahá. After the new Western Pilgrim House was built, the site was then used by members of the Bahá'í holy family. It left Bahá'í hands shortly before being re-bought by the Universal House of Justice.
