Two historic signs were commissioned in 2006 upon the official creation of the Fall City Totem Garden. One tells the history of the original Fall City Totem Pole, its installation in 1935 dedicated to Julia Harshman, and its removal due to deterioration in 1964. A second totem pole replaced it from 1982 to 2001. Beginning in 1997, an amazing community effort accomplished the restoration of the original totem pole and its return to the park in 2001. A second sign tells the legend of the pole, as communicated by the original carver, Hugh Hinds of Fall City.
The Totem Garden Park, faithfully maintained by local volunteers, demonstrates the community spirit in Fall City.
