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

Enclosed in your issue of the September Saddlebag are 12 tickets for our annual fund drive.  The proceeds from this raffle are used to pay expenses allowing the continued operation of your museum.  Our entire operation is staffed by volunteers so all monies collected go directly to the museum and not to salaries.

This year, we are offering a 2-night stay at Capercaille Cottage in Cambria.  This nice home sleeps 4 and is nestled in the pine forest of Cambria.  It has partial views of the ocean from the deck. 

In addition to asking for your help, we have been selling tickets at the Museum.  But the real success of our fund raiser depends on our members' generosity.

This donation request is $10.00 for 12 tickets for the drawing in December.

You just might win!  This is our major fund drive and we depend on its success to keep our Museum in operation.

Additionally, raffle tickets may be purchased at the Museum.

Thank You All!!
