Gainesville is a train station in Gainesville, Georgia, that is currently served by Amtrak's Crescent. The station was also known as the Gainesville Southern Railway Depot.

Constructed for the Southern Railway in 1910, the red brick station was built to replace an earlier depot damaged by a tornado in 1903.[2] Most of the building is railroad offices, with some space reserved for a passenger waiting area.[3] The station is currently also used by a local chapter of the Fraternal Order of Eagles.[4]
