The Mellenville Railroad Station, now known as Mellenville Grange, is a historic train station and Grange located in Mellenville, Columbia County, New York. It was built about 1900 by the Boston and Albany Railroad on their Hudson Branch. It is a one story brick building with a slate covered hipped roof. It features heavy wood and scroll-sawn brackets that support the roof overhang. Also on the property is a contributing privy. The building ceased to be used as a station in the 1930s, when it was acquired by the Grange.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.[1]
