Significance: The Bath Railroad Station is an excellent example of the Late-Georgian influenced Colonial Revival style as exemplified by the Flemish bond brickwork, the round arched, fan-lit openings above the doors, the cupola with its weathervane modeled after one of the destroyers under construction at the contiguous Bath Iron Works Corporation, and its five-part plan. Put into service on December 22, 1941, this structure is the last passenger station constructed by the Maine Central Railroad Company before the railroad ceased passenger service to Bath on April 3, 1959.
