This month Jim Kern will present information on Vallejo neighborhoods. We will learn their history, how they formed, and what parts of Vallejo they occupy, plus more. Jim is the Executive Director of the Vallejo Naval History Museum and entrances us with his talks no matter what the subject. After earning his masters degree in history and museum studies from Kent State University, Kern’s first museum job was at the home of President James Garfield, who lived in Kern’s home town. He answered an ad for a museum curator here in Vallejo,” remembers Kern. “I applied and I got the job.” That was in 1989, when Kern took over the helm of the Vallejo museum, which was founded in 1974 and opened in 1979.
