The station opened on June 2, 1860 as Lemon Creek, with the opening of the Staten Island Railway from Annadale to Tottenville.[1]

It is located near Seguine Avenue and Amboy Road on the main line. It's in an open-cut with two side platforms, green canopies, and walls of steel and concrete. There is an exit/entrance on the south end of each platform that allows access to Seguine Avenue; and an exit/entrance on the northern end of the St. George (north) bound platform that allows access to a small free commuter park & ride lot that is accessible from Herbert Street. Maps do not show the station name with apostrophe while the station signs do. The latter is the historically correct (and official) name. This station was the last all-timber platform on the line before being replaced in the early 1990s.
