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

Have you ever wondered what is a docent? Have you gone into the Museum and wished you could join the people there who are having such a good time?

A docent is a friendly person who works at the Museum and tries to answer our visitors questions. If you can smile, you can be a docent. No experience necessary.

Training and historical information will be provided to all interested in becoming docents. All it takes is 3 hours a month of your time and you will meet friendly people from around the world.

If you are interested, stop in, or call the Museum and leave your name and phone number. We will contact you.
