Home of the Hamburger

Numerous places from New York to Texas claim to be the home of the hamburger. Only Seymour is able to provide evidence dating back to 1885. Early newspaper articles, interviews with contemporaries, and Charlie Nagreen's family (Charlie Nagreen created the hamburger) all verify that the burger was served at the Seymour Fair in 1885. The Home of the Hamburger made it into the Guinness Book of World Records for largest hamburger on August 5, 1989 for cooking up a 5,520 pound burger!
