  5. Standing almost 250 feet tall and more than 200 feet wide, the big “M” was created by University of Wisconsin-Platteville engineering students in 1936. It was a mining school at the time, thus the letter “M.” The stones were whitewashed every year by UW-Platteville students. In the many years since, students and community members alike have taken great pride in Platteville being the home of the world’s largest “M.”

  8. Platte Mound Park, east of Platteville, Wisconsin. Given the number of times I’ve driven through Platteville, I’m pissed I waited so long to look at this one. The locals refer to it as an M. Being a Wisconsin grad, I prefer to think of it as a W.
