The Newington Junction Railroad Depot is located in Newington, Connecticut. The depot was built in 1870 by the Boston, Hartford and Erie Railroad on a railroad line originally owned by the Hartford, Providence and Fishkill Railroad. Three years later, it would become part of the New York and New England Railroad. The station was near a junction that served the former Hartford and New Haven Railroad. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 22, 1986.
