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

One truth in life is that time seems to get away from us and as a result we sometimes fail to accomplish everything we intended to do. Case in point, membership renewal. If you haven’t already done so,
please get your membership renewal form completed. Everything we do and our very existence as a historical society depends on membership. We are a positive influence on our area by keeping our local history alive and by helping other organizations in our area. We need your support. I thank all of you who continually support our historical society and help to make it what it is today, something to be
proud of.

May will soon be here and we will again be thanking our supporters by presenting our annual History Days Celebration. So mark your calendar now and
come join us on May 18th and 19th for a fun 2-day celebration.
