The former Lackawanna station was built in 1915 and has a brick station house. It was designed by architect Frank J. Nies who built other stations for the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad. Unlike most of his stations which tended to resemble massive cathedrals, Morris Plains Station was built as a simple one-story structure, which also contains a unique Spanish tile roof. An old freight station just to the north now serves for a local model railroad club. The station was added to the National Register of Historic Places on June 22, 1984, along with over 100 other stations within the state.
