The mercantile having long since disappeared, for nearly a century the Gibbses have devoted their energies to amassing large holdings in land and timber in Walker and adjacent counties. Through the years, the enlightened stewardship they have demonstrated in the management of their real estate interests has earned them commendations from professional lumber organizations and environmentalists alike, and the generous benevolence of the Gibbs family has contributed greatly to the quality of life for residents of Huntsville and Walker County. The long history of Gibbs Brothers and Company stands as a convincing example of the region-wide benefits that can flow from a privately-owned firm deeply committed to the area in which it is located.
