The Peace Pole Project is the official Project of The World Peace Prayer Society. It started in Japan in 1955 by Masahisa Goi, who decided to dedicate his life to spreading the message, "May Peace Prevail on Earth" in response to the bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Peace Poles are handcrafted monuments erected the world over as international symbols of Peace. Their purpose is to spread the message "May Peace Prevail on Earth" in the languages of the world.
Original owners of Peace Pole Makers USA were Carol & Joseph Spaulding. They began to craft Peace Poles for the Peace Pole Project in 1985. In 2001, the business was sold to current owner, Dave Moffat whose is carrying on the legacy of making Peace Poles in Leelanau County Michigan.
