Union Station is a historic train station located at Lockport in Niagara County, New York. It was constructed in 1889, for the New York Central Railroad in the Romanesque style. It was deactivated as a station in the 1940s and lay unused until 1967. It was renovated and reopened as a restaurant in 1971. The restaurant was gutted by fire in December 1974, rebuilt and again destroyed by fire in 1978.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.[1]

The current owner of the building and property is Mark Davidson. He has plans for a full restoration pending state grants.
