ED GALLOWAY'S TOTEM POLE PARK - HOME OF THE WORLD'S LARGEST CONCRETE TOTEM POLE
Totem Pole Park in Foyil/Chelsea, Oklahoma, owned and operated by the Rogers County Historical Society, is a frequent Route 66 destination. The World's Largest Concrete Totem Pole located in this unique sculpture park is most impressive. This icon is the creative genius of Ed Galloway who developed the park as a monument to Native Americans. The gigantic colorful Totem Pole, the centerpiece of the nine-acre park, rises from the back of an enormous kelly-green and aqua-painted turtle.
Totem Pole Park also includes Ed Galloway's eleven-sided Fiddle House Museum which retains many of Mr. Galloway's hand-carved fiddles. Other artifacts made by Ed Galloway and visuals of the park's development are also on display in the museum. An array of other colorful totems are scattered throughout the park.
Featured in the sculpture park, besides the Large Totem and Fiddle House Museum, are the Arrowhead Totem, Birdbath Totem, Fireplace Totem, Gate Totems, Tree Totem, uniquely designed Picnic Tables, Child's Playhouse, and Ed Galloway Home built in the late 1930s.
Picnic pavilions, a pet park, and a 1/2 mile wooded nature trail are located on the property for guests to enjoy. Space for bus parking is also available. Groups often stop to have lunch at Totem Pole Park, stroll the grounds, and shop at the Fiddle House Gift Shop.
