Dozens of volunteers donate their time and talents to make this one of the most beautiful places on earth! This garden is full of color all season long and has benches, tables, picnic areas and walking paths throughout. The focal point is a beautiful gazebo where one can sit and enjoy the beauty of the gardens. It has become a destination for weddings, wedding receptions, garden parties and picnics. Countless photographers enjoy the beauty of this Garden during all four seasons. New gardens are constantly being added to enhance the beauty and tranquility. Over 1,500 daffodil bulbs were planted in the fall of 2009 to showcase Katie’s Garden during the 1st Annual Platteville Daffodil Festival scheduled for May 1 and 2, 2010. Katie’s Garden is the anchor to the Platteville Community Arboretum and Rountree Gardens project that encompasses areas along the Rountree Branch Trail. The trail, which meanders along the Rountree Branch stream through the Platteville community, is a picturesque, quiet hiking and biking trail that is becoming a focal point of the community. As the Chamber/Visitor Center is located along the trail, the creation of Katie’s Garden is only the beginning of a truly wonderful experience for our visitors and community alike. A visit to Katie’s Garden is a must!

Community Arboretum A grassroots community initiative, the Platteville Community Arboretum, began with the development of Katie’s Garden in 2004. This community-based organization consists of a Board of Directors and numerous volunteers. Due to the success of Katie’s Garden, more garden and natural areas have been planned along the Rountree Branch stream and trail. A dog park was developed along the trail and is a great place to exercise one’s pet. A community garden is one of the next major projects. Other future plans include woodland gardens, flower gardens, and prairie and natural areas as well. Volunteers are always welcome to help with maintenance of the trail and surrounding gardens.

In 1827, Major John H. Rountree and Major John H. Campbell purchased Metcalf’s lode and opened a general store. Two years later, this small 150-person community was named Platteville. The town was planned in a style reminiscent of Yorkshire, England – quaint and practical – with access to the town’s mine entrances. In the 1800s, the town was further developed and Platteville was incorporated in 1880. The Mining Museum traces the development of lead and zinc mining in the Upper Mississippi Valley District including artifacts, models, dioramas and photographs. For a hands-on experience, visitors can take a tour underground in the 1845 Bevans Lead Mine and ride above ground in cars pulled by a 1931 zinc locomotive. The Grant County Historical Society operates the Mitchell Rountree Stone Cottage, which is open Saturdays and Sundays from noon-4 p.m. from Memorial Day-Labor Day. Built in 1837 by Rev. Samuel Mitchell, the cottage stands today as it did over 150 years ago. Much of the interior has original furnishings and historians describe it as “a gem like no other in Wisconsin.” Rollo Jamison Museum-Rollo Jamison, born in Beetown, Wisconsin in 1899, started collecting arrowheads on the family farm while still a boy. This was just the beginning of his life-long interest in history and the objects used by people in their everyday lives which grew to a collection of over 20,000 items. The guided tour of the Rollo Jamison will take you back to the turn of the century with exhibits of carriages, farm implements, tools, a tavern/general store, a kitchen and parlor, musical instruments, mechanical music boxes and more. Historic Rountree Hall (although not available for touring) is a reminder of Platteville’s past. Rountree Hall was the site of the original Platteville Academy, which existed from 1842-1866 when it was converted to a state Normal School. General Ulysses S. Grant dedicated the north wing of Rountree Hall in 1867. It also housed the Wisconsin Mining Trade School, which was responsible for the creation of the Big “M” on the mound seven miles east of Platteville. (see “Outdoor Adventures’’)

We have a strong sense of history in Platteville and a stroll down our Main Street helps one appreciate that. Platteville has 60 buildings of historic significance and many of these buildings continue to serve as homes, businesses and museums today. Platteville began as Platte River Diggings in 1827. Once home to the Winnebago Indians, Platteville was settled in the mid 1820s by European miners who were attracted by rich lead deposits. After the discovery of mineral lead in the area, the region’s economy began to flourish.
