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 Kern County Museum is under Construction! Mike McCoy, who is the Executive Director of Kern County Museum, will give us a description and review of the current construction projects and new programs at the museum.

In the 6 months Mike has been at the museum, he has completed five lingering construction projects, secured funding for a volunteer center, a new docent’s center and a large transportation exhibit.

Join us on September 18, at 11:00 a.m. at the annex to meet Mike and listen to a great presentation.
