Platteville is a picturesque community nestled among the un-glaciated rolling hills so commonly seen in Southwest Wisconsin. Platteville is one of the most rapidly growing areas of our region and is home to the University of Wisconsin-Platteville campus, originally known as the Mining School (have you heard of the big white M?).
Because Platteville is home to the world’s largest “M,” the Disney Corporation chose it for its first-ever “Mickey’s Hometown Parade” in 1998.
You’ll enjoy such annual activities as UW-Platteville Center for the Arts Heartland Festival, Dairy Days, historic encampment and a whole bunch of recreational activities. There is a family aquatic center and 18-hole golf course plus fun attractions like the Mining and Rollo Jamison Museums, as well as the Stone Cottage, a home built in 1837 by the Rev. Samuel Mitchell, one of the first settlers in Platteville.
Great views and endless activities await you in historic Platteville. Plan your trip today and see for yourself what makes Platteville so special!
