Brief Summary of Burbank
Burbank Washington is a small town 8 miles from Pasco and approximately 11 miles from Kennewick and is located in Walla Walla County. It was originally a place where early day ferry riders could rest or get their horses shod. In 1905 a private company started developing an irrigation system to supplement the area’s seven inches of rainfall a year.
Farmers arrived and planted fruit trees, grapes and alfalfa only to find their dreams short lived when the irrigation company went bankrupt. The framers held out until the federally financed Columbia Basin Project brought in water through the irrigation process.
