Totem Pole Park, on Route 66 in Foyil, is one of Oklahoma's most well known landmarks and has been featured in several articles and books on environmental folk art as "The World's Largest Totem Pole". In 1999, Totem Pole Park was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
Ed Galloway spent his retirement years building Totem Pole Park, a monument to the American Indian, from stone, concrete and his imagination. The center piece is a giant Totem Pole building supported by an enormous concrete turtle. Nearby is a "Fiddle House" in which Galloway's hand-crafted fiddles and other inlaid wood artifacts are displayed. (He was well known for his elaborately carved furniture, violins and wood pictures).
Roadside tables supported by small concrete totems invite the travelers to picnic in the shadow of the large Totem Pole.
The "Fiddle House" museum/gift shop is open 11am - 3pm (except in inclement weather).
