1894

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places on May 13, 1976  (76001612 NRIS)

From the Boston Herald, June 16, 1894 - "The interior of this handsome structure seems to be all that could be desired, nothing has been overlooked which would add to the comfort or the convenience of the patrons of the road. The main waiting room is finished of oak, with handsome seats of the same material. One of the corners has been set apart for the use of the ladies, as a sort of reception room, and there are many private houses which do not look as comfortable and homelike. There is a spacious open fire-place, tiles of different colors have been placed in front, and the entire section separated from the main room by a lattice of oak. The business offices for the Agent and Telegraph Operators have been well looked after. The baggage department is furnished with all modern conveniences. In fact, there is nothing about the structure which does not show care and thoughtfulness."

Romanesque Style: Made of Milford (Mass.) Pink granite, brown stone trimmings, and Yellow Pine.  Interior finished with Oak and White Spruce.  It measures 25 ft. x 96 ft., exclusive of platforms and awnings.

The station is owned and operated as the "Abington Depot Restaurant and Bar".  No passenger service is available.
