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

The COUNTRY STORE is calling YOU to come in and shop around!  We have recently put in several new items that you will love!  Lots of little and big signs for fun occasions!  New Purses! More Quail signs and quail too.  Some Wildflower books, more children's gifts, some beautiful Bolo Ties and Buckles, knives (that look like fish) and Indian Pine Needle Baskets.  These are just a few of the things on our shelves. We have just received the 2nd printing of Rod Middleworth's book "The Collection" (stories from 2005-2017, 12 years worth of stories!) as printed in the Courier!  All profits for this go to the Historical Society . We are always looking for gift ideas so why not check out our own Gift shop???
