The Ed Galloway Totem Pole Park is a Route 66 icon and home of "The World's Largest Concrete Totem Pole."  One of Oklahoma's landmarks, it has been featured in several important articles and books on environmental folk art and Route 66 lore.  In 1999, the park was added to the National Register of Historic Places. 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.
