Gilbert, Iowa is quite a small town, but that only adds to its character. With a population around 1,000 you’ll quickly know everyone you see. What really pulls this town together is the people as the very generous and welcoming community ropes in more and more people. Just recently has Gilbert seen some great growth, and it continues to show promise.
WHAT TO LOVE
PEOPLE AND LIFESTYLE
Since Gilbert is so small it might seem boring, but the lively people here wouldn’t let that happen. The community is very centered around the youth, and you see everyone pitching and helping. Be it sports, band, choir, you name it the people are ready to make it better. They are so dedicated to helping that Gilbert has even helped with the MakeAWish foundation to help their very own students.
DINING, SHOPPING, AND ENTERTAINMENT
Again, the small town finds a way to have what you want in a community. Dining is handled with a nice cafe called the Vault to cover you morning and lunch followed by the open flame to bring you a tasty dinner. The proximity to Ames makes Gilbert a great small town to live in, while still being close enough to the wonderful amenities Iowa State University has to offer.
