Kessler's Cross Lanes (sometimes misspelled as Kesler's Cross Lanes on maps) is an unincorporated community along Route 129 in Nicholas County, West Virginia, United States. Just south of Kessler's Cross Lanes is Carnifex Ferry Battlefield State Park, which is a park of historical interest; a Civil War battle was fought at the site in 1863.

Located nearby is the Capt. John Halstead Farm, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.[2]

Name[edit]

Originally just called Cross Lanes, Kessler was added because of General Kessler during the Civil War, so not to be confused with the community of Cross Lanes in Kanawha County.
