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 in DECEMBER 2019

Through December 13th, the Art Room will be showcasing the works of Mary Lehman, part of the Ardis and Gayle Walker Collection now belonging to our Historical Society.  Mary Lehman became known for her etchings of horses, which she often enhanced with watercolor and oil.  She was a sensitive, versatile artist, original in expression and internationally collected.  Be sure to come by soon and see this beautiful display.
