The Salisbury Amtrak Station, located in Salisbury, North Carolina, is served by three passenger trains. The street address is Depot and Liberty Streets, and is located in the heart of historic downtown Salisbury.

The station was constructed in 1908 by the Southern Railroad and was designed by Frank P. Milburn in the Spanish Mission Style. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976, but was nearly demolished until it was bought by the Historic Salisbury Foundation in 1984.[3] Renovations began in 1993 and were completed by 1996,[4] although NCDOT gave the foundation extra funding in 1999 to enlarge the waiting room.
