Old Kern County Office Building Complex
Originally built by the WPA in 1942 as a group of Arvin county office buildings, the adobe complex is now a business incubator and retail complex.
A local newspaper of the time had this to say:
“Another large project reaching completion this month is the county office building in Arvin, This group of buildings, including a sizable auditorium, will afford the citizens of that community with a central location for the efficient conduct of county business.”
The building has had some remodeling recently.
