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.

Rod Run

If you missed the Rod Run on October 14th, you missed a great time!...

We got a free space for our old Graham Truck and we sold raffle tickets to the visitors.

I’d like to thank our wonderful volunteers for working our area and selling tickets to support the museum! They are:

  • Eddi Looy
  • Marian Beard
  • Virginia Snyder
  • Kathleen Creighton-Fuchs
  • Larry Holochwost
  • Lynne & Saul McGarity
  • Charlie Gregory
  • Jane & Bill O’Hara
  • Tammy Hartman
  • Chuck Barbee

Thank you for all of your help!
