PLATTEVILLE, Wis. -- It stands more than 150 high and is marked with an iconic, 241-foot high "M," the world's largest.

On a clear day, the white "M" on the Platte Mound can be seen throughout the tri-state area, including Humke and North Cascade roads west of Dubuque. It's a prime, visual weather indicator and it observes its 75th anniversary this year.
