The Farmhouses Village was the creation of Ruth Gieszl. Her father, a skilled horseman and cowboy, was raised on family cattle ranches and farms. Her husband was a farmer whose family homesteaded and farmed since the 1920’s.
Ruth received numerous awards from Arizona Farm Bureau, Gilbert Chamber of Commerce, the City of Gilbert, Maricopa County and establish the Gilbert Historical Museum. Ruth designed a place of collected 1920’s – 1930’s farmhouses that were going to be demolished.
At her own expense, to preserve Gilbert as Gilbert was, The Farmhouse Village was created. The Village is a step back in time and home to all women owed businesses that include a restaurant, hair salon, Garden Gate Floral, Chapel At The Farm, and a unique 1930’s hot-riveted metal barn originating from ASU. Now host to the Chapel At The Farm’s large weddings and events, it is a true honor to be a small part of one strong woman’s vision and dream.
