History of Burbank, Utah
Taken from the Utah Place Names. (Links Added)


Burbank (Millard) was an early Mormon farming community established in the 1870s in Snake River Valley south of Prues Lake*. An early post office was nearby at Dearden Ranch. The community was named for Margie Burbank Clay, wife of Judge E. W. Clay. A combination of outlaws, cattle and horse rustlers, in addition to uncertain water, caused the abandonment of the community in the 1880s.
