Rogers County Historical Society

This system will be undergoing maintenance April 18th between 9:00AM and 12:00PM CDT.

The Rogers County Historical Society is a non-profit organization of community volunteers dedicated to preserving the heritage and landmarks of Rogers County, Oklahoma, in the cities of Claremore, Verdigris, Oologah, Foyil, Inola, and Chelsea. These places are unique to the history of Indian Territory, Oklahoma statehood, and our modern history. The RCHS has been instrumental in past restoration efforts of the Old Will Rogers Library, now the Claremore Museum of History where the Lynn Riggs Memorial is housed, and the Will Rogers Hotel on Historic Route 66. Both iconic buildings are located in Claremore. We currently curate Totem Pole Park in Foyil/Chelsea and the beautiful Belvidere Mansion in Claremore. We invite you to join us and become part of our story.

Ed Galloway's Totem Pole Park

The Rogers County Historical Society has completed a major restoration project of the Large Totem Pole at Ed Galloway's Totem Pole Park. Last restored in the 1990s, the paint of the largest totem pole was peeling, and the underlying concrete was deteriorating. With donations from our generous supporters, the painting of the large totem pole has been refreshed.

We celebrate each year with the annual Totem Pole Park BBQ and Music Fest fundraiser. Along with Ed Galloway's sculpture features, the park also includes a gift shop & museum, nature trails, and a pet park.

Admission is free. The park is open year-round, 7 days a week, from dawn to dusk. The Fiddle House Gift Shop & Museum are open daily, March through December, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm, weather permitting.
