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.

A few miles from Route 66, signs are just at crossing, keep on eye crossing 28A. Totem pole park is free and cool place to see.

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.

This is a small park maintained by the Rogers County Historical Society. It is filled with structures and sculptures by folk artist Ed Galloway. The pieces are well cared for, and the Society runs a one-room museum and gift shop in a building Galloway built for his collection of handmade fiddles.

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 of.

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 pole!! A must stop if you are travelling route 66.

Ed Galloway's Totem Pole Park in Chelsea, OK is worth a stop. It's not exactly by the Route 66 but 4.5 miles east on OK-28 right after Foyil. The totem poles are in nice condition and there is a gift shop (which was closed when we visited). It's really easy to find and there is parking lot right next to... More

We visited Totem Poll City with one nine year old, two eight year olds and 6 year old. The kids had fun running around the grounds, checking out the Totem poles and other displays. It's a fun quick stop for those traveling down I44 or taking the Route 66 trip.

We just had to stop and see this while on Route 66. What a crazy and amazing place!! I can only describe it as eccentric and I love that! Please don't miss this place if you are passing. Well worth a half an hour of your time!!

You expect to see places like this when driving the path of the old Route 66. And there's a lesson with this particular item. If you are going to go all the way to Foyil, Oklahoma, remember to take a picture of the main attraction. I forgot to do so, and had to use one from an on-line source to... More

It's a few miles down a country road off of Route 66 -- a little tricky to find. Once there, there are great photo ops. Classic Route 66! The Fiddle House/gift shop is small and consists mostly of fiddle displays, and this is also where you can get the key to the bathroom.
