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

I hope you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping yet because we have some great gift ideas in our own little Country Store. Just arrived: some new hats, cups, children’s things, key chains, books, whiskey flasks, shot glasses and many more things, just in time for that “special” gift.
Also, the good news is we are giving everyone 10 percent OFF ALL ITEMS DURING THE MONTH OF DECEMBER.
So come on in and shop around. Remember: it all comes back to help the Historical Society, which in turn helps our museum grow. I’ll be looking for you and hope you bring in a friend or two! Merry Christmas all.
