Featured Attraction - The "M"
The world’s largest “M,” located on the Platte Mound four miles northeast of the city of Platteville, is an iconic symbol of the mining tradition and the history of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
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.
