Sunset magazine article on Gilbert Arizona

February's issue of Sunset magazine has Gilbert Arizona placing as a runner up in the
Best suburbs category. The article  highlights the ever expanding Heritage District as well
as the home of Agritopia, a planned community.  Agritopia is currently home to Joe's Farm
Grill and the Coffee Shop. There are plans to expand the agrarian community with upscale apartments and a taco shop as well as spaces for unique retailers. On Wednesday evenings
there is a farmers market showcasing Agritopia grown produce as well as live music along
with food truck fare.
Agritopia trivia has 160 pastured eggs laid daily at the farm as well as 200 different crops
being grown over the course of a year.

Kudos to the Town of Gilbert for the well planned development of the downtown district
and to Joe at Agritopia for creating a planned community that brings a farm based lifestyle
to the suburbs.

Gilbert Historical Museum

 

 

 The Gilbert Historical Society leased the old Gilbert Elementary School in 1982 to house the artifacts,photographs, and farm machinery that residents had been gathering for a museum to display everything used during the first half of the 20th century.
     Three years later The Gilbert School Board sold the building along with 5 acres to the
Society.  Many citizens whose names are recognizable from our streets, neighborhoods, and parks collected and donated items for future citizens to enjoy. Stop by and enjoy a slice of history.
