Graver's Lane Station is a SEPTA Regional Rail station at 300 East Gravers Lane at Anderson Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The station building is on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places and the National Register. It was built in 1872 or 1879 with Furness & Evans as the architect, according to the Philadelphia Architects and Buildings project. On November 7, 1977, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and in 1983 it was acquired by SEPTA's regional rail division.
The building combines a commuter railroad station with a residence on the second floor. It combines many materials and stylistic features, leading one architectural historian to call the style "histrionic".
The station is in zone 2 on the Chestnut Hill East Line, on former Reading Railroad tracks, and is 10.3 track miles from Suburban Station. In 2004, this station saw 118 boardings on an average weekday.
