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 Holiday Season is around the corner. Do you have a friend or family member who is just impossible to shop for? The Gift of Giving may be your answer.

Enclosed in the current edition of the Saddlebag, you will find a “gift catalog.” It lists many items that will help the Historical Society with projects around the museum and annex. You can sponsor one or more projects in the name of your gift recipient(s) and your recipient(s) will receive a beautiful greeting card describing your gift. In addition, your recipients’ names and your name will be added to the donor display on the television in the Art Room.

This fundraising project will go beyond the Christmas Holidays for gifts to commemorate birthdays, anniversaries or just because.
