Dudley Station Historic District is a historic district on Washington, Warren, and Dudley Streets in the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, USA. The central feature of the district is the Dudley Square MBTA station, a Beaux Arts/French Renaissance structure designed by Alexander Wadsworth Longfellow and built by the Boston Elevated Railway (BERy, a predecessor of the MBTA) in 1901. It is one of the best-preserved BERy stations remaining.[2]

The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
