Behind Safeway in the McKinleyville Shopping Center you can see what may be the World's tallest totem pole (from a single tree). It was carved by the late Ernest Pierson (Pierson's Building Center) and friend John Nelson. The two carved the pole on site to commemorate the grand opening of the McKinleyville Shopping Center in the Spring of 1962.
Located on Central Avenue between Hiller & Pickett Roads. From the south: take the Central Ave. exit off Hwy 101 and follow Central Ave. to the shopping center. From the north: take the Murray Road exit off Hwy 101 and turn right onto Central Ave. and follow Central Ave. to the center.
