Tallest Totem Pole
Marcia Semenoff

Carved by Kwakwaka’wakw artist Mungo Martin, this 127 ft. totem pole was the tallest in the world when it was installed in 1956.  It sits in Beacon Hill Park, land set aside in 1858 by Sir James Douglas, governor of the Colony of Vancouver Island. Overlooking Juan de Fuca Strait, the totem pole can be found at the Dallas Road entrance to the park.
