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

On June 25, the General Membership Meeting will be held at the Rodeo Grounds in Kernville.  We will be treated to demonstrations by the One Spade Youth Packers, an organization that teaches kids age 9-17 skills with mules.  The event will begin with a picnic at 5:30 p.m.  The full program will begin at 7 p.m.  Bring your own picnic and enjoy the evening. 

Watch the Youth Packers, along with the organization’s founder, Reid Hopkins, demonstrate their skills with mules.  Real Cowboy Pat Pucket will show off his roping techniques.  These kids use their skills to compete at Mule Days in Bishop each year.

The program is free to the public.  And of course, children are welcome.
