Vero station, also known as Vero Beach station, is a historic Florida East Coast Railway train station in Vero Beach, Florida. It is located at 2336 Fourteenth Avenue. On January 6, 1987, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places as the Vero Railroad Station. Until a series of train terminations in the 1950s and early 1960s trains such as the City of Miami (from Chicago), East Coast Champion (from New York City) and the Havana Special (New York City) made stops at Vero Beach.

The structure no longer serves as a railroad station. It was bought by the Indian River County Historical Society and moved a short distance to 2336 14th Avenue west of the railway right of way.[1]
