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.

Just when we are all planning our holiday party finery,...

Elinor Fahey will share a festive display of handbags during December. The evening bags will have lots of glitter and sparkle!

CharlAnn Gregory's Music Box Collection was fun, with music surprising us when we were nearby . Thank you Charl for a colorful, musical, and seasonal exhibit.

Please call Linda Thurm (see your Saddlebag) if you have a collection to share.
