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.
History Days Event-A Great Success!

We had a great weekend celebration of History Days....

We had a special 2-day celebration in honor of our 50th anniversary. There were so many activities sponsored by numerous community groups, we had to move across the street from the museum on Saturday. We opened up the annex as well.

On Sunday, we had a low key kind of day with music in the Pack Station, the KV Rockhound Club on the front porch, and some art as well. If you missed it, we’re sorry. It was great fun!
