Kern River Valley Historical Society
About My Library
Our archive includes over 4,000 books from the Ardis and Gayle Walker Collection. Many of these books are quite rare. Subjects include Western History, ecology, conservation, poetry, and literature.
About Me
The Kern River Valley Historical Society has been in operation since 1967. We operate a museum and a research annex. Our museum chronicles the rich history of the Kern River Valley including the gold rush era, early hydroelectric power, our local Native Americans (the Tubatulabal), early movies made in the area, and other local history.
