Kirkland Station is a historic railway station located in West Whiteland Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. It was built between 1860 and 1879, and is a two-story, brick building. A small two-story, one room addition was built in the early-19th century. It was moved to its present location in 1880, when the Pennsylvania Railroad straightened the track at Kirkland. The building served as a ticket office and residence for the agent.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
