The Kern River Valley Historical Society is celebrating over 50 years of operation! Our mission is to preserve and communicate the rich and colorful history of this region. The Kern Valley Museum in downtown Kernville, next to the Post Office, welcomes visitors to explore our rich history.

What's Happening

Thank You Fence Post for Your Support!!!  


The Fence Post country reader has supported the museum for several years by letting us have space in their paper for the articles about the museum. They have been very generous giving us as much as a whole page for the articles and announcements. Thank you, Fence Post. It is published once a month and is distributed throughout our valley and elsewhere. A year’s subscription to your home or business is only $15.00.


Subscribing to the Fence Post would be a great way of supporting it and saying, “Thank You.”
