Seymour organizing burger memorabilia display ahead of Burger Fest

SEYMOUR, WI (WTAQ) - The “Home of the Hamburger” could soon have the tastiest museum ever.

About 15-hundred artifacts were recently donated to Seymour’s community museum.

The local historical society president hopes to have it all on display when Seymour holds its annual Burger Fest August 9th-and-10th.

Group president Bill Collar tells Fox 11 that the museum now has the world’s largest burger collection display.

He says Jeffrey Tennyson saw the hamburger as a cultural icon, and he started collecting burger memorabilia in the 1980’s. He wrote a history of the hamburger in 1993.

When he died in 2006, Collar said Tennyson left his collection to a friend in Palm Springs California – and that person decided that it all belongs in Seymour.

The collection includes hamburger telephones, golf balls, salt-and-pepper shakers, and much more.

Some of it’s already on display after being donated a month ago.

Collar says the museum will also have a photo exhibit on Seymour’s hamburger history starting next Friday.
