The Ed Galloway?s Totem Pole Park is currently owned by the Rogers County Historical Society and Foyil Heritage Association. It has a totem pole that is considered as the world?s largest concrete totem pole. The park itself is 14 acres wide and is located 3 miles east of U.S. Route 66 and Foyil.

The park was name after Ed Galloway, a retired teacher from the Children?s Home Orphanage in Sand Springs, Oklahoma. He thought of the idea of creating a three-dimensional pole when he moved to an area near Foyil after retiring in 1937. The totem pole took eleven years to complete, and in 1948, it was finally displayed for the public to see. It was 90 feet high and was made of six tons of steel, 100 tons of sand and rocks, and 28 tons of cement.

Aside from the giant totem, the park also features some of Galloway?s hand-carved fiddles, which are displayed at the Fiddle House.
