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 June display will feature Canadian train memorabilia collected by John Dodd. Thank you Ray Thurm for displaying your collection of Hood Ornaments in April.

The mascots received a lot of attention.

Thank you to Michael Batelaan for his exhibit of sprinklers in May. Who knew there are so many hose nozzles?

No one has signed up for August.

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