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

We had a great turnout for our “refresher” meeting for the docents...

We will have another one in the near future.  If you missed out, please give me a call.

Several of the docents helped out with stories in different rooms. Thank you to John Newman, Rod Middleworth and Chuck Barbee. Great job by all of you.

We would also like to welcome a new docent, Ron Humphrey... not only did he take a day a month to work but has already substituted over Whiskey Flat Days. Way to go!

Speaking of Whiskey Flat Days, special thanks to all the docents who worked that weekend. It was a busy time, and you all were your usual smiling selves helping visitors everywhere!

We can always use new docents, so come on in and find out how easy it is! Or call me, and I’ll tell you about it.
