Like so many, family journeys from Oklahoma to Arvin

  • Updated

The Californian has been publishing history pieces about Kern County to help celebrate the 150th anniversary of its official creation by the California Legislature. We asked readers to help us tell Kern’s story by recounting how their families came here.

We’ve gotten such a good response that we’ve decided to start publishing the submissions now, beginning with a particularly compelling one from reader Debbie Newlen. We’ll run more throughout the year; if you’d like to contribute, please do.
