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

Our guest speaker, Sam Ames of Sambarn Promotions, did a great job of telling us all about the Keyesville Classic mountain bike events history, and the 30th annual event. It sounded like so much fun to go even as a spectator.

Riders aged from 8 to 71 years old participate and they have free camping, a barbecue and entertainment on Saturday night. It’s a 3-day event in Keyesville at the end of March that sounds like great family fun. Hope to see you there!
