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

Know any 4th or 5th Graders?  The night of Monday, July 29, 2019 until the morning of July 30 will be a night to remember.  The kids will be able to explore the museum at night, before they sleep over! Applications are available at the Museum and the Annex. Reservations are due by June 15. 

Are you interested in helping with the evening? You can help cook, take part in the "coming to life" within the museum, or even spend the night.  Please contact: CharlAnn Gregory 760-378-4182 to sign up to help with this not-to-be-missed event.
