FLASHBACK FRIDAY: Burbank Military Academy


In the Late 1920’s to the late 1930’s the was an academy on the edge of town near the corner of Winona and Parish Pl. 

It was a Military type academy for the teaching and training of young boys. 

The school offered young men the opportunity for education mixed with military discipline and courses not taught in regular school.

The Burbank Military Academy was short lived in Burbank but evidence of its existence can be seen today as the school / barracks can be seen there today with the letters emblazoned across the front of the apartment building that was the main school Building.
