Lavers' Crossing is a former settlement in Kern County, California.[1] It was located 1 mile (1.6 km) west-northwest of Glennville.[1]

The town was founded by David Lavers, who settled there in 1858.[1] For the following decade, Lavers' Crossing was the trading center for the surrounding valley before being supplanted in that role by Glennville.[1] The site is now registered as California Historical Landmark #672.[2]
