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

Ray Thurm shared some beautiful automobile hood ornaments during October Rod Run month. They generated lots of positive comments from car enthusiasts.  Thank you Ray.

November will show off original handmade wooden toys. Though they are not for sale, it reminds us it is time to think about holiday gift giving. December’s exhibit will be about the Vancouver Winter Olympics.

2020 is almost here! Reservations for space in the Display Cabinet are nearly filled, but January is still open.  If you have a collection to share, please call Linda at 760-417-2881.
