Ed Galloway spent his retirement years building a unique 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" which houses a display of Galloway's hand-crafted fiddles and other inlaid wood artifacts. Roadside tables supported by small concrete totems invite travelers to picnic in the shadow of the large totem pole.

I lived in Foyil while I was in high school and have alot of fond memories. I moved away, but travel alot past the totem pole and still love stopping by with my children to visit. We really like the trail that is there and it makes us feel relaxed every time we visit.
