Railroad Terminal Historic District is a national historic district located at Binghamton in Broome County, New York. The district includes 19 contributing buildings. Four of the buildings were directly related with Binghamton's rail passenger and freight operations, including the passenger station. Five buildings were built as warehouses and ten were built to house retail activities with residential or office uses on the upper floors. The buildings were built between 1876 and 1910, with a major addition to one of them completed in 1932. The Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad passenger station, with its Italian Renaissance campanile was built in 1901.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
