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

It’s that time of year again! The Kern River Rod Run is on October 13.

We’ll be at the Rod Run selling raffle tickets, showing off the Graham Truck, and visiting with the car enthusiasts.

This is always a fun event, and we make quite a bit of money.

We can use your help. If you’d like to help, contact Rich Burdge.
