As you approach Chelsea, you’ll see some interesting bridges. An original 1926 bridge over Pryor Creek following the original, twisting roadbed is noted with a historical marker. The bridge was replaced after six short years by a new truss bridge that still carries westbound traffic on Route 66.
Route 66 continues past Chelsea (the downtown area is off to the side) and the Route 66 Antique Mall, which isn't quite so much a mall as it is a bevy of antiques in a sizeable older building. The mural on the south wall is worth checking out, too. From there, it's still a nice four-lane drive at full speed as you cruise towards a tall pole.
Only 10 miles from Chelsea, the northern Oklahoma community of Foyil has one claim to fame: the World's Largest Concrete Totem Pole. Located about four miles east of Route 66 along Highway 28A, Totem Pole Park has a 60-foot high, 30-foot wide totem pole standing which is likely the tallest in the world.
