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 FEBRUARY 2020

Happy New Year! As we start the new year I would like to thank you for the opportunity to be of service to the community through the Historical Society. The last few months have been challenging, with me being new to this job and people being out of town for the Holidays. But we got through it, thanks to the folks that stepped up when I called on them for help; Ron and Dianna Anderson, Kim Salisbury and the docents who came to the rescue when I called them, especially Eddi Looy and John Newman. BIG THANK YOU TO ALL.         

I am excited to announce and welcome back Linda Kubisiak; she’s back on the schedule!  Thank you to John Newman, Bob Woods, Linda Kubisiak, Tom and Sue McKinney, and Willy and Mary Craig for agreeing to be added to the Emergency Call List.  Last but not least a big thank you to the callers who have been very patient with me and are working with me on getting the schedules to them: Ruth Devine, Bonnie Delano, Kitty Rock and Cindy Ott.  I look forward to working with all of you this coming year!
