At this site in 1848, the town of Gilbert was established and was renamed Gilberton in 1851, and then in 1856 was proclaimed Gilbert Town.

The original town contained a Post Office, Hotel called the Bow and Arrow and a Store. With the coming of the Railways in 1870, the town slowly declined and in 1902 the town officials reverted back to agricultural land.

This Plaque was unveiled on the 4th April 1986 during the 150 Jubilee Anniversary of South Australia
