A 20-foot tall totem pole featuring relief carvings of five animals on one side and a bald eagle on the other side stands near the Walnut Street entrance into Simpson Park.
The totem pole was carved from an old burr oak tree that was in Simpson Park. The carvings on one side are those of a coyote, bobcat, fox, owl and buck. Each animal is about four feet tall. Steve Holt, who has done all of the tree carvings in Simpson Park - including four others - carved the totem pole which was privately funded in memory of the late Gary Clampitt, who enjoyed wood carving.
