Introduction

A community of approximately 29,000, Burbank, Illinois is located in Cook County. The area now known as Burbank originally consisted of a few scattered farms. The diagonal State Road connecting Ridgeland/Narragansett Avenues and Cicero Avenue was the first road that ran through the land. Then, following an explosion of subdivision developments that took place in the 1920s, the region began to expand around it. The city was named Burbank after the Luther Burbank Elementary School, and was officially incorporated on April 4, 1970.
