Susie's Burbank

Do you know Susie Hodgson? She and her husband work at the Burbank Historical Society; she's a lovely person with a winning personality and an unquenchable desire to know all about Burbank history. In the past she has written articles for various Historical Society publications and now she's allowed us to reprint some of these for your reading pleasure. She tells us, however, that her role here HAS to promote the Historical Society, and we are happy to accommodate this. The Burbank Historical Society/Gordon R. Howard Museum is open Saturdays and Sundays, 1 to 4 pm - FREE Admission! It's located in George Izay Park, right next to the Creative Arts Center. Phone: (818) 841-6333. Web site: Email:
