Ice-Cream Social
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 Flash

Featured in the Art Gallery

Iva Cross Fendrick is a fourth generation resident of Kern County of the Cross/Tilley Pioneers.

Her mother, Vina Cross was one of the founders of the Bakersfield Art Association. Her work is mainly watercolors with pen and ink.

Iva feels that we all have a need to reflect upon what gives us visual pleasure. “ When I see the soft shadows on the rolling hillsides, I long to capture that mood on paper for others to enjoy”.

At the reception on Saturday, July 8th from 4-6 pm, Randy Fendrick, Iva’s husband will be giving a book signing of his recently printed book “The Other Music of Bakersfield”.

Come to meet these two artistic people. 

The Art Gallery is open Thursday thru Sunday, 10 am to 4 pm

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!!...

It’s time again to pack a lunch, get your bowls, spoons, and ICE CREAM ready to take to the mountains!!

It will be cool and so peaceful up there on top of the hill at Alta Sierra on Greenhorn Mountain.

Tuesday, July 18th is the day. We go up at about 10 to secure the spot and enjoy the day .

You can come up anytime you are ready, but be there by1:00 P M. Please bring a chair, serving spoon, your eating utensils and bowl, ICE CREAM, a sweater (it does get cool), ICE CREAM, and your appetite. There will be so many kinds of ICE CREAM that we probably will not be able to eat it all.

Just go up Evans Road (Hwy 155) till you get to the summit (Rancho Rio Road) and look to the right or left. We will be waiting for you. We never know exactly where we will be at until we get there.

Don’t forget the ICE CREAM!!

Tuesday, July 18th Ice Cream Social at Alta Sierra.
