Tooth decay was a common and greatly feared ailment in earlier days.

People either had to make do with a painful tooth or find someone to pull it. If a trained dentist could not be found or afforded, a blacksmith or another person who was adept at tongs was often called upon to extract the tooth.

Al Kruger donated this residence in 1957. It was originally located on farmland about four miles west of downtown Bakersfield.

One room homes, such as this one, were a common first home for many Kern County pioneers. When the family could afford better, these homes became storage buildings and were relegated to the rear of the property.
