A warm welcome for restored totem pole


ALAN BERNER / THE SEATTLE TIMES

A crowd attended the unveiling Friday of a restored totem pole at the Southwest Historical Society's Log House Museum in West Seattle. The pole stood at Belvedere View Point Park from 1966 to 2006, when it was removed because of deterioration (it was replaced there by a third pole). Artech, a local restoration company, put more than 150 hours of work into the pole since 2012. "It's a beacon for us and the community," said Clay Eals, executive director of the historical society.
