Ed Galloway's Totem Pole Park, located near Foyil, Oklahoma, is a unique and fascinating roadside attraction featuring an array of colorful totem poles and folk art sculptures. Created by Ed Galloway, a retired artist and teacher, this park is a testament to his artistic vision and dedication to creating a lasting legacy. The park is home to the world's largest concrete totem pole, which stands at an impressive 90 feet tall.

Galloway began constructing the park in 1937 as a tribute to Native American culture and folklore. The centerpiece of the park, the towering totem pole, is adorned with vibrant depictions of various animals, symbols, and figures, all meticulously hand-painted by Galloway. Surrounding the main totem pole are several smaller totem poles, each with its own unique designs and artistic flair, as well as other sculptures and a twelve-sided "Fiddle House" filled with Galloway's handmade fiddles and other intricate wood carvings.

Visitors to Ed Galloway's Totem Pole Park can explore the outdoor gallery of folk art, which offers a glimpse into the creative mind of its creator and a celebration of Native American-inspired art. The park is maintained by the Rogers County Historical Society, which has worked to preserve and restore the artwork to ensure its longevity for future generations to enjoy.

The park is open year-round, and admission is free, making it an accessible and budget-friendly destination for travelers and art enthusiasts. Whether you're interested in folk art, and history, or simply looking for a unique and offbeat stop along Route 66, Ed Galloway's Totem Pole Park provides a delightful and inspiring experience.
