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

Patricia Henry, representing the Nuui Cuni Cultural Center, gave us a totally great program last night.  She talked about her own life here (she was born in Old Kernville), presented the history of the Nuui Cuni Center, spoke about the Center’s arts and crafts program, and showed us all the wonderful gourds and other exquisite works of art.  They also demonstrated  basket weaving. Their arts and crafts program starts at 9 AM on Wednesday and Sunday mornings. If you've never been to the Nuui Cuni Center and would like to find out more about our local Native Californians, it's definitely the place to go.  It is a very special place.


See you at the POTLUCK DINNER on August 27.
