    A Town of History

    by Yaqui Updated Feb 20, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you love historical buildings, then you are going to just love this place. Kern County has taken great pride and effort to preserve the history of pioneers and where they once lived. These 56 buildings on 16 acres were lovingly moved and restored inside the park and arrange into a wonderful presentation of what an old town would look like. Most of the building you can walk inside and view the furnishings of what may had been the fashion during its era.

    They have special events here all the time, Christmas is especially fun here. They have everything decorated and have tours into some of the victorian homes.

    Black Gold: The Oil Experience

    by Yaqui Updated Feb 20, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a really cool place. I wish I had more room to show you more pictures of what they have available the helps adults and children know how they drill for oil. This place is a great education tool with hands on devices that actually work and make it fun to learn. I recommend you bring the kids and the big kids to this place.

    That's me;-)

    If you are indeed coming to Bakersfield, I would guess a trip to our Pioneer Village should be on your itnerary. The Kern County Museum has done a nice job of preserving many of the old buildings of Kern County and putting them in a village style setting.
