The world’s largest “M” symbolizes Platteville’s mining history.

Platteville

The scenic rolling hills around Platteville were one of the first locations to be settled by Europeans who were drawn there by rich lead deposits. The lead miners gave Wisconsin its nickname, the “Badger State.” Platteville’s early mining heritage is showcased in The Mining & Rollo Jamison Museums, a three-acre campus built atop the 1845 Bevans Lead Mine with a cultural history collection of more than 20,000 items from the late 1800’s.
