Burden’s Lunch Restaurant
Traders Point was home to several businesses that catered to the traveling public. Burden’s Lunch was one such place. Located next to the Wilkins Garage, (just south of the current location of Bill Kappel’s Countryside Lawn and Garden Center), Burden’s was a simple place where motorists in the 1940s and 50s could enjoy fresh pie, a cup of coffee, and conversation. This photo of Mrs. Burden’s son and daughter in law was taken during World War II while Max Burden was home on leave. The source of the photo, Mrs. Burden’s granddaughter, Kathy Burden Bewsey, was born in Traders Point and still lives in the area.
