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

What a magnificent month we had in May!  With all of the outstanding activities, History Days, Eyes of the Forest, field trip, Education Class, General Meeting, Display Cabinet, along with keeping the Museum and Research Annex open and running smoothly, we were busy.  There are many who deserve to be recognized here for their extra effort during May and History Days and I thank all of you. I wish I could list everyone’s names here but unfortunately I don’t have room to list so many. There are three who really did stand out because of all the extra work they did and for their organizing skills to put it all together for us. They are Rich Burdge, Carla Aubrey, and Margie Clack.

What an exciting month we had! As you already know, we are a very active historical society. We simply do more than most historical societies and we have been doing so for a long time. We are in need of more volunteers. We always seem to get things done, but we can always use more folks. 

Thank you, all!                                                                                                               - Ron
