Gilbert, Arizona - Home to Gilbert Days

What is now the Town of Gilbert was founded in 1902 by a gentleman named William “Bobby” Gilbert. A short time later, Gilbert had provided land to the Arizona Eastern Railway to construct a railroad line from the prospering city of Phoenix to the town of Florence, which led to an influx of Mormon settlers fleeing Mexico.

The town was officially incorporated in 1920 on July 6th and for the next twenty to thirty years the town remained a close-knit community of farmers. This is right around the time that Gilbert earned the nickname of “Hay Capital of the World”.

In the 1970s, Gilbert started to take shape. During this time, Phoenix’s growth poured over to many of the suburban areas, Gilbert included. Even in those days, town planners had the foresight to annex land and prepare for population growth well into the 21st century. For martial arts lessons in Gilbert, contact us today.
