Siouxland’s Small Towns, Burbank, SD

19 Aug

Coming back from a trip up to Vermillion, SD, I passed through a small South Dakota town called Burbank. Nothing like the California community the late night host and comedian Johnny Carson referred to in some of his dialogues. Burbank, like a lot of small communities, had a prosperous start. But as time passed, its need for growth wasn’t fulfilled as other communities surpassed it. And so it stands like many others as a reminder of past days. People still live there, but its glory has faded.
