All that remains in the area of the once thriving town of Burdickville are three businesses. Laker Shakes, La Becasse and Trattoria Funistrada. Although both Laker Shakes and Funistrada are located in Burdickville, neither can claim that they are part of the history of the town. In the late 1850s William Burdick built a saw and grist mill. In 1876 John Helm built a general store. Not much more of the town is known other than the fact that one of the area’s newspapers, the Burdickville Meteor in the 1870s was published in Burdickville.
