Heritage District

In 1925 the well for Gilbert's domestic water was drilled to the depth of 475 feet where a large flow of pure water was found. A six-inch pipe was sunk to bring the water to the surface. The tower and pumping station were constructed during the latter part of the year.
Did you know that the pump house also served occasionally as a temporary jail to hold "rowdy citizens" while they sobered up? Gilbert sent their law-breakers to Chandler or Mesa prior to the construction of the town hall in 1938. A permanent jail was located in the rear portion of the building.
