Dale Hallock is 78 years old. He never thought he would one day become a volunteer at the Gilbert Historical Museum, his original elementary school.
“It’s quite flabbergasting,” he said as he walked on the original wood floors. “That’s why it’s so interesting to me that the floors sound the same.”
Hallock is a Gilbert historian who has spent the majority of his life as a town resident.
Through his life experiences, Hallock talks about education, agriculture, transportation and the population growth of Gilbert, Arizona.
“I think when you get interested in history, it just kind of takes a hold of you,” he said.
