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 in JANUARY 2020

As I write my first message as your President of our Historical Society, I want to thank Past-President Ron Anderson and his Board of Directors for a job well done in guiding our society. I am honored to be selected to serve as your President, and look forward to providing leadership, and working with the new officers and directors of the Historical Society. I indicated to those in attendance at the Historical Society Installation and Christmas Party that there is nothing broken in our society, thus there is little need to change things. I will be asking the officers and directors to prepare a vision for their area of responsibility, including a proposed expenditure plan for the year. These plans will be reviewed at the January board meeting later this month, so that we have a unified vision for the coming year.  Your Board will continue the progress made by the previous leadership teams to keep the Kern River Valley Historical Society moving forward. 

Thank you to all members for this leadership opportunity.
