Gilbertsville is a historic town within the Douglass Township in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania that is now home to roughly 4,800 people. The Douglass Township was originally settled by German immigrants in the 1680’s, making Douglass one of the 28 original townships in Montgomery County. The current boundaries of the township did not come into being until 1807, after several more political divisions and changes in landownership. The name Gilbertsville derived from the large number of Gilbert family, descended from Hans George Gilbert who relocated from Hoffenheim, Germany in 1750. Originally one of several small “hamlets” within the Township, Gilbertsville did not take long to establish itself as the main center of commercial, industrial, and civic activity. By 1884 Gilbertsville, with its expanding cigar industry, lumber, and coal yards, developed into a large enough place to be recognized as a specific town with a “large and flourishing community.” The town had no fewer than 3 general stores and 7 cigar factories, making it a virtual boomtown in the still sparsely settled Township. Among the other industries in Gilbertsville in 1884 were wheel righting, smithing, plow making, carpet weaving, tin-smithing, carpentering, cigar making, and agriculture related industries. Gilbertsville still serves as the seat of Township government and is the center for retail and commercial activity.
