This is a very cool stop, especially if you are a history buff. The lady in the gift shop didn't seem to be related to Mr. Galloway, but she sure knew her stuff; and told us about his life aside from the totems. She was open (we went on the 4th of July), so that was neat. She had a guest book that said that people had visited from Hungary and other places around the world within the past two days.

Well, come on down, bring the kids, to the truest original Route 66 icon ever seen; nobody minds that it's on a side road, not the highway itself. These monster tall totem poles are a reminder of days when men were men and gals were Queens. Mr. Galloway fashioned these colorful giants as a legacy gift to his wife. They are located in the middle of nowhere -- and ya just gotta see 'em.

We stopped here in 2011 (May) and again this week and it's pretty much unchanged in that time. There were some really nice ladies working the gift shop that offered up additional information on the attraction.

It says it's closed until March to go inside the totem pole.
