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 DECEMBER 2019

As I write my last message as president of our Historical Society, I look back on what I consider another good year for us. 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 undertook. We are now completing our 52nd year as a Historical Society. No small feat. Some countries don’t last that long. But we are just getting started, we keep getting better, and we will be here in the future. That is, with your continued, much needed help. I wish our new officers the very best as they take over the reins this coming month, and I thank each of you for allowing me to serve. With our new president, Erie Johnson, I know our Historical Society is in good hands. Please give him as much support as you have accorded me.

God bless each of you and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


From Dianna and me,
