Burke History Project

What Is It?

The Burke History Project is a volunteer project to collect and record as much of Burke's history as possible and publish it on this Internet web site so it can be enjoyed by Burkians wherever they may now reside. It will be a virtual museum accessible from anywhere in the world.

We are looking for stories, memories, information, genealogies, and photographs of Burke and Burke citizens of the past. We are especially looking for photographs from before 1960 of residents, homes, churches, cemeteries, businesses, events, cars, airplanes, locomotives and trains, natural phenomena, or any other significant feature of Burke. We have already received information from several contributors.
