Gilbert is a relatively young town and prior to the first activity in 1902, was a barren and desolate land. The Arizona Eastern Railway wanted to create a rail line between Phoenix and Mesa that would run through Florence. The rail line was designed in the hopes of bringing gold and copper from a mining area near the Gila River to Phoenix. Frank Murphy began buying rights-of-way from all landowners that the line would cross, including William Gilbert. A spur was constructed to grow hay to ship to Phoenix and shortly after, a depot named Gilbert Depot. Other businesses began to see how successful the area was becoming and set up their own shops beginning in 1908. The town of Gilbert started to take shape one business at a time.
The first Post Office opened in 1912 followed by Gilbert Elementary School. The Roosevelt Dam and the Eastern and Consolidated Canals were built in 1911, which transformed the area into a bustling farming community. People began slowly trickling into Gilbert for farming jobs. Many crops were harvested including the main staple of hay, which would earn Gilbert the title of “Hay Capital of the World.” Mormon colonies fleeing Mexico and Pancho Villa’s forces settled in Gilbert as well, and initiated church groups and meetings in 1915. By 1920 the population had grown to about 500 people and was incorporated in the same year.
More retail shops like Liberty Grocery and Meat Market, Liberty Market Restaurant, as well as Gilbert Bank popped up. The town’s first water tower was built in 1925 and paving projects were commissioned to make shopping more accessible. Progress came to a halt during the Great Depression and Gilbert Bank was converted to a drug store called the Southside Pharmacy. Citizens survived on the little pay they received from farming jobs. In the late 1930s and 1940’s the town picked back up with an increase in crop exports.
In 1970, Gilbert Town Council approved a strip annexation encompassing 53 square miles of county land. The Council observed the surrounding cities of Tempe, Mesa, and Chandler’s growth and paved the way for Gilbert to grow in the same manner.
