The city of Gilberts is known for being relatively close to major cities, but far enough away to provide room for healthy growth for families and small industrial manufacturing. Gilberts’ community members plan for the future by carrying on traditions and values that were set in place by Gilberts’ founders. In 1839, Albro Gilberts established his farm that was eventually sold in 1855 to Elijah Wilcox and Andrew Pingree. Today, the farm is a town staple, named Gilberts’ Farm in Albro’s honor for his presence and contributions to the area.
The city of Gilberts truly remembers where it came from, illustrated by its motto “growing with vision,” to expand their community. In 2000, Gilberts had a population around 1,300, which has grown to over 8,000 residents today. Giberts was named the second safest city in all of Illinois, and its residents take comfort in the sense of safety they receive living in such a close-knit community. There are several community events that occur annually to promote community bonding and to keep traditions alive including Easter egg hunts, community-wide garage sales, fishing derbys, community day festivals, and fall bonfires.
