The North Creek Railroad Station is a historic railroad station complex located at North Creek, Warren County, New York. The complex consists of the railroad station, the freight house, round house, turntable, and horse barn. The station was built in 1874 and is a simple, rectangular, gable roofed building with a broad, overhanging strut-supported roof in the Stick-Eastlake style. Its exterior is covered with vertical boards.
The original station was built in 1871 as the new northern terminus of the Adirondack Railway, soon after the line had been purchased by the Union Pacific Railroad. The railroad served the garnet mining and tanning industries in North Creek. The railroad's vice president originally intended to extend the line to Ogdensburg, but the line was not extended beyond North Creek until 1944, when the line was extended for freight service to Tahawus. In 1889, the line was purchased by the Delaware and Hudson Railway, becoming its Adirondack Branch. Ski trains ran to the station from 1934 until the outbreak of World War II.
The station is currently operated as the northern terminus of the Saratoga and North Creek Railway, which has revived both the ski trains and summer service south to Saratoga Springs. The railway currently occupies the freight house and engine house while another part of the complex serves as the North Creek Depot Museum.
