National Register of Historic Places in Kern County
The Tevis Block is one of the best examples of Second Renaissance Revival architecture in the southern San Joaquin Valley. It was designed by Henry A. Schultze, a prominent San Francisco architect. It is one of the last early buildings in the downtown business district which retains its architectural integrity.
The Kern County Land Company building was the center for much of the land development in Kern County as the company owned hundreds of thousands of acres of land in the area.
