Arts & History

Gilbert MuseumOnce known as the “Hay Shipping Capital of the World,” Gilbert, Arizona has evolved into one of the fastest growing communities and the largest town in the United States. Encompassing 72.6 square miles, just southeast of Phoenix, Gilbert has transformed from an agricultural community into a contemporary, urban community with a relaxed but vibrant atmosphere.

Incorporated in 1920, Gilbert owes its beginnings to William “Bobby” Gilbert who provided land to the Arizona Eastern Railway in 1902 to construct a rail line between Phoenix and Florence, Arizona.

As the 2nd Safest City and the 22nd Best Place to Live in the country, you can experience all the West has to offer in an environment that makes you feel like you’ve come home.

The iconic water tower stands tall in downtown Gilbert in an area that once housed little more than the post office. Today, you will find the downtown bustling with shops, restaurants, a theater, art galleries, and is now home to Saint Xavier University.
