Honoring Ruth and
The title of the Arcadia Museum is dedicated to Ruth and Charles Gilb, who are major donors to the Museum. The Gilbs have supported the Museum since its inception and continue in its vision for the future. Charles passed away in 2008 and is survived by his wife, Ruth, who continues her dedicated work with the Museum. Ruth serves on both the Museum’s Commission and the Arcadia Historical Museum Foundation. She holds many honors and has worked in the Arcadia community for decades. Some of her work with these numerous organizations include: Arcadia’s Sister City Program, Arcadia Tournament of Roses Association and Arcadia Citizen of the Year. Charles established the Charles E. Gilb Company; producer of fresh fruits and vegetables. He was a great civic leader, serving on many boards and councils in Arcadia and throughout California. Included in his service was sixteen years on the Arcadia City Council, also holding the honor of being four time Mayor of Arcadia. The Gilbs’ contribution to the Museum has been invaluable. We honor their service and dedication!
