Lehigh Valley Railroad Headquarters Building, also known as the Conrail Building, is a historic office building located at Bethlehem, Northampton County, Pennsylvania. It is a red brick building set on a stone masonry base. The building was built by the Lehigh Valley Railroad in two stages; the ground through third floors were constructed in 1885-1886 and the upper floors and western wing were added in 1889-1890. The building's style reflects Late Victorian Gothic and Queen Anne influences. The main elevation features two copper bay windows at the corners; one three stories tall and the other one story tall.[2] The former office building now houses apartments.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
