The Foxborough Pumping Station is a historic water pumping station at 25 Pumping Station Road in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Its main pumphouse was designed by Ernest Boyden and built in 1891; it is a brick structure with Queen Anne styling. The station also includes several historic wells, a period garage, and the man-made Fales Pond, a once-dammed section of the Neponset Reservoir near the pumphouse.[2]

The station was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.[1]
