This picturesque brick-and-stone railroad station consists of a central pavilion and two end pavilions with circular links. It is the roofs which dramatize the composition; they seem to wander over the buildings in one direction or another, even curving down over the gable ends. In front of the station on the passenger platform is a long metal canopy supported by wrought-iron members arranged almost Art Nouveau-like in a pattern of sprouting plants. This is one of the few stations in the state which is still in use.
