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

Dave’s presentation begins with his time in the Marines through his military life and leads to his adventures on a motorcycle. Dave is a true world traveler who has logged well over 80,000 miles on a motorcycle as he has traveled around the globe more than once.

A noted speaker who has filled his life with adventure, he brings it to us in his own special way. You will almost think you were there as he spins his web of adventure, despair, and triumphs. You will learn how he made friends around the world as he rode from country to country on his Harley Davidson motor-cycle.

According to Brend Tasch, noted historian, there have only been 70 people since 1912 who have successfully circumnavigated the world, and Dave Barr is one of them. He also completed two Guinness World Record rides.

The program begins at 7 p.m. at the Senior Center in Lake Isabella on October 23. Admission is always free and refreshments will be served.
