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

Stargazing at the Airport.  We are going to try again to look to the skies on...

Tuesday, March 6, at 6:30 p.m. at the Kernville airport. Rich Burdge and the Astronomy Club will be hosting the field trip.

The club’s powerful telescopes will target the constellations Orion, “The Hunter,” and Gemini, “The Twins.” Lots of deep sky wonders will be very visible, so come out and look up.

Be sure to wear your warm woolies. Bring a blanket and lawn chairs, and maybe some hot cocoa! We will have lots of fun.

See you there!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         JoAnne Johnson
