Town Background

Burbank was once a thriving town of a several thousand residents.  A railroad, major highway and brimming oil fields made the economy hum. In fact, Burbank was was home to two movie theaters, two hotels, a grocery store and rock quarry. The winning high school basketball team was a big draw, too.

By 1930 boom went to bust, however, as the oil industry dried up.  Families who relied on the oil fields for jobs, moved away, the railroad closed, and the highway re-routed.  The high school band and sports teams disbanded, businesses left, and the high school actually closed in 1968.  Today, Burbank is a virtual ghost town with just 123 residents and dwindling.
