The Philippi B&O Railroad Station was built in 1911 on a prominent site in Philippi, West Virginia, United States. The Mission style building is an unusual representative of that style in the state. After passenger service to Philippi ceased in 1956, the building was used by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad as a workshop. The station was purchased by the city in 1979 and was restored as the Barbour County Historical Museum.[2]
