Toppenish, Washington: Totem Pole House

A small home has a yard filled with totem poles, carved by its owner. Oddly convenient because it's downtown, not off in the woods somewhere.

115 S. Elm St., Toppenish, WA
A half-mile north of US Hwy 97, on the west side of Hwy 22 just north of Madison Ave.

Totem Pole House

This amazing home is covered with colorful totem poles and carvings hand-made by the older gentleman who lives within. There are even works in progress within a few feet of the sidewalk. A tall chain-link fence surrounds the entire property and provides safety and privacy for the residents, although the house is on a major arterial just steps away from the town center and the famous murals.

I was lucky enough to catch the artist sitting outside when I came by, and he gave permission to take photos.
