Pennsylvania Railroad Station is a historic train station located at Mayville in Chautauqua County, New York. It was constructed in 1925, for the Pennsylvania Railroad and is a 1 12-story, brick structure with an overhanging hipped roof. The building measures 117 by 29 feet (35.7 by 8.8 m). It was abandoned by the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1950. The property was purchased by the Village of Mayville in 1968.[2]
