The HD SOUTH building, home of the Gilbert Historical Museum, has been a cornerstone of the Gilbert Community for decades. An important town landmark sitting at the south end of the Heritage District for more than 100 years, the HD SOUTH building is home to many prominent Gilbert events.

Our calendar is dominated by our signature annual fundraising gala – A Night at the Museum – Gilbert Comes Alive, but we also host several other annual events that capture the imagination of the town.

Memorial Day Celebration

Every year the Gilbert Historical Society, along with American Legion Post 39, is proud to host Gilbert’s Memorial Day service on the museum’s front lawn, where monuments honor Gilbert residents who have served in our nation’s armed forces.

The service begins at 9 a.m. and includes a flag ceremony, the laying of wreaths and recognition of veterans in attendance, as well as musical entertainment and a variety of speakers. All Gilbert residents are encouraged to attend to honor those who have died in service. We encourage you to bring lawn chairs as seating is limited for this popular event.

Breakfast With Santa

After careful consideration, we have come to the difficult decision to cancel our annual holiday event.  We are doing so in the interest of public health and safety.
