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

Thank you Bill Best for displaying your woodworking skills.  The auto, truck, train, and airplane models were exquisite.  Everyone commented on your re-creation of our Graham Truck. Great presentation.
