FROM THE WEBMASTER ---

Dear Friends of the Museum:

Except for the President's Message, this website will remain as it was in April, 2020, the month we closed.  As time passes, the writings herein become more and more poignant.  Reading them, we recall the time that was, viewed from the perspective of the times we find ourselves in today.  Thus history grows precious, and the future beckons, and we yearn for the good things we have known here in the Kern River Valley.

Thank you for bringing your energies here.  You are the Museum's real treasures.  We are still actively accepting new members and sending out our monthly newsletter, "The Saddlebag".   Click on the words "Membership" or "Contact Us"  in the left-hand column to reach us.
