Stone Avenue (also known as La Grange-Stone Avenue) is a station on Metra's BNSF Railway Line in La Grange, Illinois. The station is 14.1 miles (22.7 km) from Union Station, the east end of the line.[3] In Metra's zone-based fare system, Stone Avenue is in zone C. A staffed station building is on the south side of the three tracks.

Like the other La Grange Metra station (La Grange Road), La Grange-Stone Avenue is between West Burlington and West Hillgrove Avenues. Stone Avenue, the road for which the station is named, is actually a minor street which terminates at West Burlington Avenue in front of the station, only to begin again at a dead end street south of Bell Avenue. The closest major street to the station is Brainard Avenue. It is .4 miles (0.64 km) from the main La Grange station.[4]

The station was built about 1901 by the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad according to a design by the company's general architect, Walter Theodore Krausch.[5]
