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

We have been so busy this summer in our Country store we keep moving things around and trying to find new and fun gifts for you to buy.  Kathie Orton and Cindy Ott are constantly looking for things that will "fit" in our store.  If you haven't been in to look around you are missing out on some great gift ideas and lots and lots of books.  We have been invaded by a group of Dinasours you really need to see them!  Be sure and bring in your children and grandchildren!!  I'll be looking for you!!!
