Significance: Built in 1868, the New Caanan Railroad Station is significant as one of the last remaining vestiges of the New Caanan Railroad and is also one of the earliest surviving railroad stations in Connecticut. The accompanying train sheds are rare survivors in the state. Its Gothic-Revival-style architecture is not a mode usually employed in train station design in the state, making the station even more important.
