The Highground Veterans Park
On this 140-acre Veterans Memorial Park, visitors experience tributes that vary in significance from national (Native American Vietnam Veterans Memorial) to historical (WWII Globe) to contemporary (Legacy Stones).
From the point of the plaza one can see one-half million acres of spectacular woodland scenery and glacial moraine. Located three miles west of Neillsville on Highway 10 in west central Wisconsin, USA., The Highground is open to the public at no charge 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
The Highground is a place of education, a place of healing and hope, a place of peace, serenity and beauty. "More than for all veterans, more than for those who did not come back, this Highground has become a place for all of us."
The Liberty Bell
The Liberty Bell Foundation was founded in 1976 by a group of businessmen from Minnesota. Their goal was to bring to the citizens of the Nation the true, inspiring story of the founding of our Republic, and the principals of personal freedom upon which this founding was achieved. An exact replica of the original Liberty Bell was cast in France. Mounted on a trailer, the Liberty Bell was taken to thousands of schools throughout the United States, allowing over a million children in 36 states a first hand opportunity to learn about freedom
When the tour director died, the Liberty Bell Foundation ceased giving public presentations. After considering a number of options, the Foundation decided that the best place for the Liberty Bell to continue its patriotic mission was at The Highground.
The Liberty Bell is housed in an authentic timber frame building made in May of 2002 by Master Timber Framer Lyle Lindholm and volunteers.
