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

Total members of the KRV Historical Society as of the 27 is 451.  Welcome New Members...

Kathleen Freeland, Bakersfield; Robert and Monica Lambert, Kernville; Wesley Marquand, Kernville; Ron Humphrey, Lake Isabella; John Stumphauzer, Mt. Mesa; and David Warren, Onyx.

We are all so very proud of the two fully paid buildings that we all maintain by our monthly dues. I ask the ones who have not paid yet to please respond by the end of March.

If I do no receive your payments by then your names will be removed from the membership and you will not be receiving our monthly Saddlebag.

Again, thank you all for your support.
