The Pennsylvania Railroad Freight Station, also called the Chartiers Valley Railway Freight Station, is a historic, former train station building in Washington, Pennsylvania. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on July 21, 1995.
The station was built in 1871 for Chartiers Valley Railroad and was leased later that year to the Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and St. Louis Railroad (PC&StL). The Chartiers Valley Railroad was merged with the Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railroad (PCC&StL) in 1907. The Pennsylvania Railroad leased the Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railroad (PCC&StL) in 1921. The Pennsylvania Railroad was eventually merged with the New York Central Railroad to form Penn Central. Penn Central declared bankruptcy on 1970 and the station was sold to a private individual, instead of being transferred with the rest of Penn Central's assets to Conrail in 1976.
