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.
