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

Our ever growing need is for docents. We are always searching for more people to join our great group of people to meet and greet the public!

It’s such a simple job, I am surprised YOU haven’t joined us! All it takes is 3 hours a month to help keep the museum running smoothly.

All the visitors love to talk to us and find out all about our wonderful museum.

This month we actually have two new docents who are joining us. They are: Chris LaMoure and Dana Rubin.

Welcome to the best place to meet strangers! All the visitors who come through our museum leave as friends!

So come on in and ask us about helping out or give me a call: Vicki Middleworth
