Madison Station is a New Jersey Transit station in Madison, Morris County, New Jersey, United States, along the Morristown Line. The station was built in 1916 and donated to the community by Marcellus Hartley Dodge, Sr. and Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge. The tracks were elevated through the downtown and no established roadways were hindered by crossing delays. The station included baggage and cargo facilities readily accessible by wagons as well as the stationmaster offices, a newsstand, and waiting facilities featuring extensive banks of high-backed wooden seating. Weeping Mulberry trees were planted among the landscaping and in natural areas in the parking area. The station was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[2]
