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.

Graham Truck

The 1925 Graham Truck spent it's entire life in this Valley. It was given to us as a well used, rather seedy looking truck and was restored at Camp Owen Boys Camp.  It is featured in our Whiskey Flats and Christmas Parades as well as local functions.  The truck is started once a week by hand crank and normally starts on the 1st or 2nd crank.  No one has broken an arm yet.
