The Richmond Railroad Station Historic District is a group of historic commercial buildings in Richmond, Indiana, the icon of which is the Daniel Burnham-designed Pennsylvania Railroad Station, completed in 1902. The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987 and is also a local conservation district designated by the City of Richmond's Historic Preservation Commission.

A previous station at this same location was also a stop on the procession of Abraham Lincoln's funeral train. Indiana Governor, Oliver P. Morton, boarded the train at this stop, and rode it to Indianapolis, where a procession and showing were held.
