Citizens Preserving History is working to move Merle Haggard’s childhood “Boxcar” home to Pioneer Village at the 
Kern County Museum.

 Merle was born in 1937 in Bakersfield, California, to James and Flossie Haggard.  He grew up in Oildale in a Santa Fe Railroad boxcar which his father had converted into their family home.  Merle's  music career also began in Bakersfield, and over the years his music has gained worldwide recognition. 


With your generous donation, you can be a part of this historical preservation to honor Merle Haggard by moving and restoring his childhood "boxcar" home to the Kern County Museum.
