“built by a creative genius”
Of the many spectacular things to see around Rogers County, one of the most impressive has to be the World's Largest Totem Pole. It was the creative genius of Ed Galloway, who developed the park as a monument to the Native American. The centerpiece of the nine acre park, the totem pole, rises from the back of an enormous turtle. The nine acre park also includes Galloway's eleven-sided Fiddle House that houses his hand-carved fiddles. Artifacts made by Ed Galloway and visuals of the park development are on display in the museum. Throughout the park are various sizes of colorful totems, displaying the Indian Folk Art.
If you have other places you are going to it is worth the stop. We drove out there just to see the Totem, I think it was about 30 mins from Hwy 44. We made the mistake of driving about there about 8pm so by the time we got there it was dark and hard to see. Also make sure you have some change with you when you are going back on the Hwy, the toll both is change only. Thankfully someone before us had dropped a few quarters on the ground.
This is a forgotten gem! The totems are fascinating and the gift shop is very educational. A MUST see in your roadtrip
This was one of our favorite stops. It is almost a religious experience as there was no one on this property except myself and my friend, and the girl that works in the gift shop/museum. The totem pole is beautiful, the other statues are amazing, and it's all very private and FREE (which I loved). The location had its own parking lot, too, which was great. If traveling with kids, pack a lunch because this property would be a great picnic stop. There are other statues and a carved table and chairs set, great for kids.
The The only issue we had with the app getting us here was that the location in Google Maps said it was on the right side of the road, not the left side...but luckily its pretty hard to miss a 90' by 54' totem pole.
A good place to stop and stretch your legs. Went when it was cold and the store was closed (and we were the only people there). The actual art is very cool- would recommend if you have a few extra minutes to get off the highway to get there.
Arrived late & missed the gift shop. Interesting totem, not made out of wood. Really off the beaten path.
Hours wrong don't open till 12 noon. Good photos didn't get to. See inside totem pole or gift shop.
Ok. Hours are wrong open at 12 noon.
Didn't get to see gift shop
Great quiet place for the kids to run around and have a picnic lunch/dinner. Kids can climb on just about all the sculptures, it's free, and the main feature is really pretty huge.
Located in a decent sized park, it's a good stop for the kids and dog to stretch their legs. There are a few sculptures scattered around the park as well. I recommend stopping before the museum and gift shop close because there is not much else to do otherwise.
