That stop is Revelstoke, BC, Woodenhead City Park.
THE STORY OF "WOODENHEAD"
"Woodenhead" was created in the 1930's
by local resident Peter Fuoco in his free
time while working on the Big Bend
Highway project. Using a double bitted
axe and some chisels, he decided to try
his hand at sculpting. Government Officials
were so impressed by the creation,
that they took the finished sculpture
and set it along the highway as one of
the first road safety warnings in B.C.
The sign advised speeding motorists
"not to be a Woodenhead" and slow down.
During the 1960's, when the Trans-Canada
Highway opened, Woodenhead was moved
to town and became a local heritage
artifact. In 2005 the restoration of
"Woodenhead" and the construction of the
protective roofing was carried out by
the City of Revelstoke.
