Winona is a historic train station in Winona, Minnesota, United States. It is served by Amtrak's daily Empire Builder service. It was originally built in 1888 by the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad, known later as the Milwaukee Road.[3] A former Milwaukee Road freight house also exists here.

The station was designed by architect John T. W. Jennings.[4] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2013 as the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Station for having local significance in the theme of transportation.[5] It was nominated for representing the development of train transportation in Minnesota with Winona as a major rail hub.[6]
