A few miles from the Belmont Mound is the Platte Mound. Both of these hills are visible from my farm, 15 miles away.
We hiked up the stairs alongside the world’s largest M. University of Wisconsin-Platteville mining students built an M out of limestone on the hillside of the Platte Mound in 1936-1937. UW-Platteville students have been maintaining it ever since. To see the M, click here.
