Zabcikville reached a high-water mark of 80 people just prior to 1950. Today that many people can be found on any given Sunday at the only restaurant in town (and one of the two buildings).

John Zabcik founded the town with other Czech families and the sign above stands at what was once a service station. The 1990 census reported less than 40 people call Zabcikville home.
