Featured Attraction - The "M"
An iconic symbol of the mining tradition and the history of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville marks its 75th anniversary this year. The world’s largest “M,” located on the Platte Mound four miles northeast of the city of Platteville, has served to help identify the university throughout the years.
The Platteville Mound is one mile long and approximately one-half mile wide, 150 feet high and 450 feet above the city at the summit of the hill. The “M” was built on the south side of the hill at a 45-degree gradient.
