Deerfield Beach Station, also known as the Old Deerfield Beach Seaboard Air Line Railway Station, is a train station in Deerfield Beach, Broward County, Florida, which is served by Amtrak intercity rail and Tri-Rail commuter rail.

Station NRHP historic marker

Located at 1300 West Hillsboro Boulevard (SR 810), just east of North Military Trail (SR 809), the station was built in 1926 by the Seaboard Air Line Railway. It shares the same Mediterranean Revival design as the Delray Beach Seaboard station and the Homestead Seaboard station. Those design features include arched entryways, arcades, stuccoed walls, and a barrel-tiled roof.[3] The station was placed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places on April 5, 1990.

The historic Seaboard Air Line Railway Station also houses the South Florida Railway Museum, which is open to the public on Wednesdays and Saturdays.[4]

In 2010, the Florida Department of Transportation finished a restoration of the historic station. The $380,000 project included a new roof, interior improvements to the lobby and restrooms, repairs to the exterior walls, and installation of new air conditioning units.[3]
