Come and enjoy Gilbert’s history at the Gilbert Historical Museum, located within HD SOUTH at the southern end of the vibrant Gilbert Heritage District at the southwest corner of Gilbert Rd. and Elliot Rd.
Gilbert Historical Museum has been at the heart of the Gilbert community since 1982. The HD SOUTH building, the original Gilbert Elementary School built in 1913 and home to the museum, sits proudly on the National Register of Historic Places, the only building in Gilbert with that designation.
