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

Wow we had another great program.

Jill Belanger gave a great presentation about the Life and contributions of Alexander Hamilton and his wife Elizabeth.

I want to thank our own Linda Clark for arranging this program.

Our local chapter of DAR is having a Luncheon on April 21 at Paradise Cove, a Fancy Hat Luncheon. Dressing from the inside out. Please call Linda for more info. DAR stands for Daughters of the American Revolution. They learn a lot of history and have a good time.
