Lehigh Valley Railroad Station is a historic railway station located at Ithaca in Tompkins County, New York. The Passenger Station and Freight Station were built in 1898 by the Lehigh Valley Railroad. The Passenger Station is a Classical Revival structure with a Romanesque feeling. It is a massive square building with extensions and sheltering roofs for baggage operations. At one corner is the entrance marquee and a four sided street clock mounted in a Corinthian column. The main waiting room section has a hipped roof and features a pedimented porte cochere. The Freight Station is a long, gray painted frame building with a two story clapboarded section and a long freight storage part. It was used as a passenger station until 1961 and, in 1966, was converted for use as a restaurant. In 2012, the building is a branch office of Elmira's Chemung Canal Trust Company.
