New York, New Haven & Hartford Passenger Depot is a historic train station on Depot Street in Southbridge, Massachusetts. It was built by the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad in 1910, and served as a passenger station until 1930. It is built in a Spanish Colonial style, with stucco walls and a tile roof, a style which is uncommon in any sort of building in central Massachusetts. There is only one other rail-related building in Southbridge, an altered freight depot that is near this building.[2]

At the time of its listing on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989,[1] the depot building had been repurposed as a senior center.[2]
