Newspapers brought news of wars, politics, local happenings and other important information to the residents of Kern County.

This exhibit displays artifacts reminiscent of Kern County's first newspaper office, the Weekly Courier. George Tiffany first published the Weekly Courier beginning on August 18, 1866 in the county seat of Havilah.

The remnants of the mining boom town, Havilah, is located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains between the Kern River Valley and Walker Basin approximately 45 miles northeast of Bakersfield.

Richard and Samuel Schrader donated this building originally located on Taft Highway near the Buena Vista Golf Course in 1957.
