Heritage DistrictThis is the third elementary school in Gilbert and was built in 1913. The first two schools were part of the Mesa School District. Everett Wilbur, who later became Gilbert's first mayor in 1920, donated the land where this school was built. The east wing of the school was built in 1913 and had four classrooms, two offices, a central assembly room and a large entryway into the building. The building had no inside plumbing, and there were two outside toilets. A well south of the building provided fresh water. A furnace in the basement provided heat in the winter. During this period about 85 pupils attended the school.
