See You In Seymour!
TeenServe is coming to Seymour, Wisconsin, for the first time! After coming to TeenServe Workcamps for several years, the local group felt led to bless those in need in their own community!
Seymour was founded in 1868 and named after Governor Horatio Seymour of New York. Seymour is said to have once been called Squeedunk, which means “little settlement” or “village”.
William and John Ausbourne were the first settlers in Seymour. They had traveled from western Outagamie County on the Wolf River during the summer of 1857, making their way to the mouth of the Shioc River and moving to a spot where the Black Creek flows into the Shioc. After finding no more roads to follow, the Ausbournes settled in the present location of Seymour, which was occupied by Native Americans at the time. There they built a log house.
“Hamburger” Charlie Nagreen served the world’s first hamburger at the Seymour Fair of 1885 when he decided to flatten a meatball and place it between slices of bread to increase portability.
