About Kern County

How to Beat a Kern County Traffic Ticket

The area now known as Kern County was first claimed by the Spanish in 1769. In 1845 and 1846 the second expedition lead by John C. Fremont passed through the area. Upon reaching the Kern River, the river was named after Edward Kern, the topographer of the expedition party, later to be the name of the county. The land was dominated by mining in the mountains and the desert and spurred small communities to sprout. In 1855, the California legislature took the southeastern territory of Tulare County in an attempt to create Buena Vista County, but was unsuccessful. Instead, in 1866, the would-be county merged with additions from Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties creating Kern County.

The county encompasses a total of 8,163 square miles and is the largest county by area in California (nearly the size of the state of New Hampshire). Within the county lines, over 44,000 active oil wells reside producing about 4 percent of the overall United States’ production. Severe air pollution causes poor visibility for the estimated 893,000 people who call Kern County home.

Edwards Air Force Base is located in Kern County and is the home of the Air Force Test Center, Air Force Test Pilot School, and NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center. Along with the large amount of oil production, Kern County contains nearly 25 percent of California’s in-state renewable energy production, including hydro-electric power, solar power, and wind power. Kern is also notoed for its mineral wealth and is the home of the largest open pit mine in California, Boron, which mines borax.
