The Kern River Valley Historical Society has been in operation for over 40 years. Our mission is to preserve and communicate the rich and colorful history of this region. To achieve these goals we have established the Kern Valley Museum in downtown Kernville next to the Post Office.

News from the Country Store

Did you know that there are three ladies who buy, change things around,...

pay the bills and just keep our Country Store running? They are constantly looking for things that YOU and our visitors may like to buy. .

When you buy something from our Gift Shop you probably wonder where the money goes! Well we give a donation to the Historical Society four times a year and they use those funds for whatever the Society needs at that time. Our total profits end up helping make the Museum what it is. AND we couldn’t run it without all the faithful Docents.

So the next time you see one or more of these ladies please say “THANK YOU” for all their work. They are Cindy Ott, Darlene Woloweic, and Vicki Middleworth.
