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 July display will feature turtle memorabilia collected by Kathie Orton.

Thank you John Dodd for sharing your collection of Canadian Pacific Railroad models in May. The Canadian visitors were excited to find them showcased.

No one has signed up for August.

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