1844 - 1873: The History of Gilbane - The History of Gilbane

Gilbane is one of the nation’s oldest family-owned design and build companies and is recognized as a leader in the industry. Founded in 1873 as a family-run carpentry and general contracting shop in Providence, Rhode Island, the firm quickly developed a reputation for building high-quality homes, mansions and public buildings such as the President’s House at Brown University and the Casino in Roger Williams Park. This reputation remains true today as evidenced by our 140 years in existence and counting.
