This totem pole which dramatizes the fact that Colquitt is Georgia's number one agricultural county was conceived by Mr. W. B. (Ed) Aycock, Sr., pioneer and inspirational leader since 1909.

The pole, dedicated in the Fall in 1963, serves as a rallying point for present and future farmers; and symbolizes the history of farm progress in the county.

Mr. Aycock, at the age of eighty-eight being a dynamic force in the development of the area, caused this cypress totem pole to be carved by his own hand. It is a constant reminder to our populace that Colquitt County is, and must remain, Georgia's agricultural leader.
