Seymour is a city of almost 3,500 in Outgamie County, almost the smallest city in the country. It was incorporated in 1883. Only 2 years later, the hamburger was born at the Seymour Fair. Food vendor Charlie Nagreen flattened a meatball and placed it between two pieces of bread to make a sandwich easy to carry around. The idea stuck and you can find them everywhere.
We made our way to Depot Street where the museums is located. The Seymour Community Historical Society (1975) runs and maintains these museums and events held there. The community celebrates their famous sandwich each August with Burger Fest, complete with a parade.
The museum grounds, an assortment of rail cars are also here. Also many informative signs.
To the right of the depot.
Across is the famous “Charlie Grill”, used to cook the world’s largest hamburger.
To the left of the depot is a LARGE statue of Charlie, a great place for a selfie! We of course HAD to take one with a dramatic flourish!
On the base of the statue are a series of plaques with Charlieisms.
The corner on Depot St. also has a Veteran’s Memorial.
That about sums up our visit here, we stayed for about 1/2 hour and had to continue our trip home. We hope to come back someday for their Hamburger Fest.
