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

As this year is coming to a close, I wish to thank 
each of you who have given so much of your time
and effort to make sure that we succeeded in all
that we have done.
Our museum continues to draw
visitors from all over our great nation and the world.
We are still about the only museum around with
free admission.
Our annex is a big plus for us. It is
our multi-use facility. Primarily built as a research
facility and research has increased significantly, we
also use it for our education classes, fundraising,
and to help other clubs in our area. It has helped us
to better serve our community.

I wish our new officers and directors the best as they
step up to new leadership roles as board members
this coming month. Because of your time and effort,
things are looking bright for our Historical Society.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Dianna
and me.
