Beth Sarim, the house in San Diego Rutherford had built and lived in.
From the Proclaimers book, page 76,
A few years after Brother Rutherford?s death, the board of directors of the Watch Tower Society decided to sell Beth-Sarim. Why? "The Watchtower" of December 15, 1947, explained: "It had fully served its purpose and was now only serving as a monument quite expensive to keep; our faith in the return of the men of old time whom the King Christ Jesus will make princes in ALL the earth (not merely in California) is based, not upon that house Beth-Sarim, but upon God?s Word of promise."
But, did the Watchtower of December 15,1947 state what was the purpose Beth-Sarim had fully served?
Did the Watchtower state that the house was for Rutherford's exclusive use?
