The Richmond Railroad Station Historic District is a group of historic commercial buildings and national historic district located at Richmond, Wayne County, Indiana. The district encompasses 22 contributing buildings the icon of which is the Daniel Burnham-designed Pennsylvania Railroad Station, completed in 1902. It developed between about 1853 and 1915 and includes representative examples of Italianate, Classical Revival, and Chicago School style architecture. In addition to the Pennsylvania Railroad Station, other notable buildings include the Miller Brothers Block (1890), Jacob H. Lichtenfels Building (1890), Charles Sudhoff Building (1893), Benjamin Starr Building (1896), William H. Alford Building (1905), John Roberts Building (1877), R.F.D. Hose House No. 1 (1890), James Shaw Building (1875), and Richmond / Atlas Underwear Building (1910).[2]

The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987 and is also a local conservation district designated by the City of Richmond's Historic Preservation Commission.[1]

A previous station at this same location was also a stop on the procession of Abraham Lincoln's funeral train. Indiana Governor, Oliver P. Morton, boarded the train at this stop, and rode it to Indianapolis, where a procession and showing were held.
