Monument commemorates Joseph Jolly, the Chairman of the first Roads Board in Nungarin.
The Nungarin area was part of the Merredin Roads Board District with two representatives on the Board, but the settlers were disgruntled with the service received. The local roads were in poor condition making carting of goods more difficult and time-consuming than necessary. In February 1921, a redistribution of the district boundaries was proposed, and on 24 March 1921 the Nungarin Roads Board District was formed from areas in the Merredin and Ninghan districts, and covered an area of 2,000 square miles (518,000 hectares). The first Roads Board election was held on 6 August 1921 and Joseph Jolly was elected Chairman.
