From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Joyfull (also, Joyful) is a former settlement in Kern County, California.[1] It was located 2 miles (3.2 km) southwest of Bakersfield.[1]

Joyfull was founded by Isaac Rumford in 1881 as a Utopian colony under the auspices of the Association of Brotherly Cooperation.[1] The Joyful post office operated from 1883 to 1884, when the colony was abandoned.[1]
