Hamburger Man statue Home of the Hamburger

Recently visited Seymour and the Home of the Hamburger. Except for a coating of snow the statue of Hamburger Charlie Nagreen and the grill used in 1989 to cook the world largest hamburger (at the time) are in great shape. The statue and grill are located on the North end of the downtown district right off of N. Main St. (Hwy 55) on Depot St. A railroad museum is also located on the grounds.
