Origin of the Hamburger
In 1885 Charles N. Nagreen, a young lad of 15, came to the Seymour Fair to sell meatballs. When he realized people wanted to walk around the fair grounds and eat, he flattened a meatball between two slices of bread and called it a "hamburger." This was the first time the hamburger sandwich was produced and sold.
