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 August display will feature ironwood carvings collected by Martha Allington.

Thank you, Kathie Orton, for sharing your collection of turtles in July.

The question “Are you a turtle?” was heard repeatedly during the month. September will feature green glass and October will feature sea shells.

Please call Linda Thurm if you have a collection to share.
