Program Description: It is hard to overestimate the effect of the Kelly Road on Cloverdale and Northern Sonoma County.  In a few short years, the area was changed from a sleepy agricultural economy with a stable population to a bustling lumber and timber economy.  Cullen Wilder will talk about those times, how the road was built and his role as a young choker setter in a rough and tumble time.
