The Essex Freight Station is a railroad station located in Centerbrook, Connecticut. The station was built in 1915 by the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad along the former Connecticut Valley Railroad line. It is a single-story wood frame structure, with a low-pitch roof that has wide eaves supported by large brackets. A passenger station of similar appearance was originally located nearby, but was demolished. The station is now used by the resurrected Connecticut Valley Railroad, which offers scenic excursion trips.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on April 19, 1994.[1]
