HD SOUTH offers a variety of exhibits and programs. (GSN file photo)

HD SOUTH plans a series of informative programs next month for people of all ages. Programs are led by artists, historians, storytellers, botanists and scientists; experts in their field who share their knowledge and skills with our community.

Gilbert Museum is a repository of artifacts chronicling the town’s rich history, featuring newly remodeled exhibits and interactive displays. It is located in a building that opened as Gilbert Elementary School in 1913. It is the oldest building in Gilbert and is the town’s only one on the National Register of Historical Places.

Many of the educational programs are free, while some come with a small charge to cover materials. Information: hdsouth.org/calendar. Unless otherwise noted, registration is required for the one-time events at hdsouth.org. Programs are free unless otherwise noted.

HD SOUTH is located at 10 S. Gilbert Road and is open Tuesday and Thursday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
