Dedicated on November 11th, 2001

This plaque marks the starting point of the Wisconsin Purple Heart Memorial Highway.

In 1994 Wisconsin's Governor Tommy G. Thompson signed into Law Wisconsin Act 347, which designated U.S. Highway 14 west from Richland Center to the Wisconsin State Border as the Wisconsin Purple Heart Memorial Highway.

This highway is dedicated to all of the men and women who were wounded or gave their lives for our country in time of conflict.
