Gilbert, Arizona is located in the southeast valley of the Phoenix metropolitan area. With a July 1, 2009 population of 218,397, Gilbert is recognized as the fourth fastest-growing large municipality in the nation and ranks 28th out of top 100 best places to live in America. The community has one of the highest ranked K-12 education systems in the state and has been noted as the 28th safest city in the country.
As a young, affluent community focused on the creation of wealth through an economically diverse environment, Gilbert owes its beginnings to William ‘Bobby’ Gilbert who provided land to the Arizona Eastern Railway in 1902 to construct a rail line between Phoenix and Florence, Arizona. Incorporated in July of 1920, Gilbert was primarily a farming community fueled by the rail line and construction of the Roosevelt Dam and the Eastern and Consolidated Canals. It remained an agriculture town for many years and was known as the “Hay Capital of the World” from 1911 until the late 1920s.
