It's a small and peaceful park in Foyil with more concrete art than just the totem pole, though that alone is impressive enough to visit. There are no fees, and is free for all to visit.

An interesting side stop traveling along Route 66. Ed Galloway was a local sculptor and artist who created this huge totem pole, along with other, somewhat smaller ones. More interesting than the initially advertised totem poles was the tremendous collection of hand made fiddles, housed...More

We enjoyed seeing the world's largest totem pole. We also enjoyed going in the gift shop and seeing all the fiddles on display! This is a nice area and the lady in the gift shop was exceptionally nice!

This place is a little out of the way, about 5 miles off the turnpike on Rt 28A in a rural area outside of Claremore, OK. As I was staying nearby, I thought I'd include a visit here, and happy I did. It was the...More

This was a neat attraction to visit, but not something that is worth going far out of your way for it. But if you're in the area, it's worth checking it out. The big totem is really impressive to see its size, and the detail...More

The gift shop wasn't open when we were there and it was a little muddy from all the rains but I'm glad we got to see this Route 66 icon.

Take the side road and go look for your self. Biggest totem pole around made from cement by Habd by a dedicated artist. The shop is worth looking at just for the violin display alone. Lots of different types of wood I have never heard...More

Had to stop and see this place whilst travelling route 66! A little bit strange but great! Great to learn a bit about the guy who did the totem poles and his wood carving was amazing. Have to get a picture with the tallest totem...More
