Welcome To The Highground

The Highground near Neillsville, WI is a 155-acre manned veterans memorial park that pays tribute to the dead, and honors the survivors, their service, and their sacrifices. The Highground fulfills its mission of healing and education by bringing past lessons into our hopes for the future. We seek to have The Highground continue to be a focus of healing for all who come, regardless of the name of the battle which left the scars. The park includes tributes to veterans of WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and Persian Gulf (Desert Storm to present), as well as, a National Native American Vietnam Memorial, a Military Working Dog Tribute, a Meditation Garden, a handicap accessible Treehouse, an exact replica of the Liberty Bell, Effigy Mound, a Learning Center (with a library) and 4 miles of hiking trails. The Park continues to grow as history unfolds. Located three miles west of Neillsville on US Hwy 10, the park is lighted and open to visitors year round 24 hours a day. “More than for all veterans, more than for those who did not come back, The Highground is a place for all of us.

Honor Our Fallen

The Highground honors all who have served in times of conflict and in times of peace. All veterans of any era have, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America,” for an amount up to and including their life.
All names from Korea to present are read at The Highground, out loud with the toll of the replica Liberty Bell. (2,000+ individual names are read on Memorial Day and Veterans Day.) At several events a representative group of names are read with those attending answering “Present” on their behalf. The Highground does not let our fallen go in silence.
