Gilbert, built the theatre that now bears his name, and is considered one of the greatest contributions to art in the state. When in health, you would always find him busy at his work. And he was a man who did his work in a workman like manner, never being satisfied until it just suited him. He possessed the artistic eye and could see the beauty in a structure before it assumed form. He will be greatly missed by the people of Beatrice."1

The original site was submerged by the backwaters of the dam.1
