The Kern River Valley Historical Society has been in operation for over 40 years. Our mission is to preserve and communicate the rich and colorful history of this region. To achieve these goals we have established the Kern Valley Museum in downtown Kernville next to the Post Office.

I just can't say THANK YOU enough for the way all of you have come to my aid! ...

These last few months have been just busy, busy, busy with lots and lots of people.

YOU have all been wonderful working extra hours when I called on you.

Our "slow" season is creeping up on us when we won't have near the people we had in the Summer months.

So keep up your smiles and stories and keep telling those stories. Our visitors love it.....

Thank each and every one of you! Big hugs from me!
