Life in the mid 1800s was difficult. The average age of death in the United States of America was around 40 years old. Disease, accidents and hard work took its toll on people lives.

This exhibit displays artifacts, dating from the 1890s to the 1920s, utilized in an undertaker's office to prepare a body for burial.

This building, constructed at Kern River Park, now known as Hart Memorial Park, housed park employees and visitors. The Kern County Board of Supervisors purchased the land for the park in 1921.
