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

Michael Batelaan is displaying his unique collection of Sprinklers.  Who would have thought there are so many types of "do-dads" to water your flowers and lawn.  A must see in May.

Thank you Ray Thurm for your fascinating collection of Hood Ornaments on display in April.
