Gilbert has come along way since being known as the “Hay Shipping Capital of the World.” Since it’s incorporation in 1920, Gilbert has transformed into one of the fastest growing communities and the largest town in the United States. Southeast of Phoenix and encompassing 72.6 miles, Gilbert went from being an agricultural community to a thriving and economically-diverse suburban community.
In 1902, the Arizona Eastern Railway constructed a rail line that ran from Phoenix to Florence. This was made possible by William “Bobby” Gilbert who provided the land to the railway.
Gilbert has had tremendous growth in the last three decades. The population increased from 5,717 in 1980 to more than 235,276 in 2014. The town has been named the 2nd Safest City and the 22nd Best Place to Live in the country which explains why so many want to live and do business in Gilbert.
If you have ever visited Gilbert you can't help but notice the iconic water tower that 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 and soon it will also be home to a University.
Gilbert provides a quality of life that translates to a thriving and diverse community. The Town offers 9.8 million square feet of retail and more than 600 acres of developed park land. Let’s not leave out that Gilbert also has seven golf courses, four community pools, four community recreation centers, two theaters, and an indoor ice arena. Throughout the year, Gilbert is host to numerous festivals, youth and amateur sporting events, academic conferences, sports tournaments, an art walk, and farmers markets.
Discover Gilbert! There’s always something to do in the community.
