EXCLUSIVE! Height of World’s Largest Totem Pole to be revealed.

Does size matter? You bet it does. That’s why the McKinleyville Press asked a professional surveying company to measure The World’s Largest Totem Pole. The results will appear in the coming edition.

Of course, we could have saved time and just looked at the plaque at the bottom, which says the pole is 160 feet tall. But is that accurate? And what about the alterations that were made in 1984? And what about the antennae that flopped over about a decade ago and are dangling from the top?

There were questions that needed to be answered, so we called in the good folks at Points West Surveying Co. See this week’s paper for results.

Here’s a photo of the pole taken in 1962. Michael Pulley of Points West Surveying Co. found it. It may have been taken by John Olson at Oscar Larson & Associates, which did work for the Piersons.


Here’s a more current photo taken by Jack Durham
