Tehachapi Historical Murals

The Tehachapi Main Street Murals Committee has worked together since the year 1999, to raise funds and plan a series of historical murals to showcase the rich history of the Tehachapi Valley. More murals will be produced as funds allow.

The murals are meant to beautify the downtown area, showcase the history of the area for local residents, and serve as a historical guide for visitors to Tehachapi.

Mural In A Day is a way for local artists to learn the techniques and challenges of working on a more monumental scale than that to which most are accustomed. There were 15 Tehachapi artists who worked on the Jake Jacobsen mural, along with Art Mortimer, master artist from Santa Monica.

Tomo-Kahni Tours

Due to the extremely sensitive nature of the site, Tomo-Kahni is available to the public by tour only. These tours are led by trained State Park docents on the weekends during the spring and fall months.

Arrive at the Tehachapi Museum, 310 S. Green St., Tehachapi, at 8:30 A.M. Registration and orientation begins at 8:45 A.M. Then it is necessary to drive about 12 miles to the park (high clearance vehicles are recommended). The moderately strenuous walking tour takes about three hours to complete.

The overall tour, including orientation and driving time takes about 4 to 5 hours. As Tomo-Kahni is at an elevation of over 4000 feet, the weather is variable, so layered clothing is recommended. Water, good walking shoes and sun protection are also necessary.

The cost of the tour is $5 for adults and $3 for children age 6–16. Under 6 is free, but not recommended on the hike. Reservations must be made two weeks in advance. There is a $10 fee for reservations.
