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

DOCENTS!  We are having quite a race on who can show the Museum off on a tour the most times!!!  Right now we have a tie going between RICH BURDGE and EDDY LOOY!!! Don't forget to sign your name and keep track of how many tours you give, we may have to give prizes several times!!! 

On another note, please think about helping out a JUNIOR  DOCENT!  When Senior Docents  are applying for a scholarship one of the things they ask for is "Community Service".  What better way to serve our community than to work at the Museum giving tours to visitors from out of town or in town!  We would love to train you and have you work once a month on a weekend just 3 hours helping our Senior Docents show the folks around. 

DO YOU KNOW A JUNIOR WHO WOULD LIKE TO SPEND SOME TIME AT THE MUSEUM???  Give me a call and let’s set a time to get them involved!!
