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 are always looking for new docents!

So if you want to help out at the museum we sure can use your help! Just give me a call, and I will happily show you around and introduce you to all the fun people who work at the museum! We do have some new docents who have recently started to volunteer their time.

Welcome to Eleanore Fahey and to John Stumphauzer! Both of these people came to our “refresher classes” and decided to share their time with us once a month! Be sure and give me a call if you too would like to volunteer.
