In 1885, 15-year-old Charles Nagreen sold meatballs at the Seymour Fair. To satisfy people who wanted to walk around and eat, he flattened the meatballs into patties, sandwiched them between two pieces of bread and called his creations "hamburgers." "Hamburger Charlie" sold burgers at the fair for 66 years. Both the Food Channel and the Travel Channel have produced programs on Burger Fest and the origin of the burger.
There is a story in the Green Bay Press Gazette.
