Cornwall & Lebanon Railroad Station, also known as the Pennsylvania Railroad Station, is a historic railway station located in Lebanon, Lebanon County, Pennsylvania. It was designed by George Watson Hewitt and built in 1885, by the Cornwall & Lebanon Railroad. The building was expanded in 1912. It is a two-story, brick, brownstone, and terra cotta building in an eclectic Victorian style reflecting 17th-century Flemish, Romanesque, and Chateauesque influences. It features a broad porch roof with ornamental iron brackets.[2] The Cornwall & Lebanon Railroad opened in 1883, and was acquired by the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1918.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.[1]
