Gilbert Az has a New Mural about World War 1 Era Life in Gilbert

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty Equal Housing Opportunity

There is a new mural on the south facing wall of the Gilbert American Legion building? The entire wall has become a canvas to depict The Town of Gilbert in the World War 1 era.Gilbert Leadership Class XXI and Mary K Opat, a muralist and fine art painter, bought this wall to life during the month of April and on May 1 from 5:30-7pm a grand opening celebration will honor Gilbert’s newest piece of art and the open space adjacent to it which will be a small park.

As a Gilbert resident for many years I have often tried to remember what the train depot that stood in that area was like. The mural seems a perfect tribute to a time when the depot was serving citizens of Gilbert.


Why not make May 1 an evening to stroll in Gilbert ‘s Heritage District not only for the mural celebration but to get free BBQ  at Joe’s Real BBQ Customer Appreciation Day and then enjoy the Gilbert High School Artfest at the Gilbert High School.
