The Ridge Route Communities Historical Society is dedicated to collecting and preserving the history and artifacts in the mountains south of Bakersfield and north of Castaic. Our area of research is from Wheeler Ridge on the north to below Pyramid Lake on the south, east to Neenach in the West Antelope Valley, and west to Lockwood-Ozena areas.

A limited display of photos and items from the areas history may be viewed in the museum's exhibit room and extensive files, covering every subject known to the mountain communities, are available for visitors to view and research.
