Lehigh and Susquehanna Railroad Station (Central Railroad of New Jersey Station)
This last vestige of Wilkes-Barre's railroad era is a picturesquely massed Italianate brick depot. Its cupola-topped roofline resembles that of the contemporary Wyoming Valley House (c. 1868, demolished), once Wilkes-Barre's principal hotel, suggesting that the same Philadelphia-based architects handled the design. The station has suffered numerous renovations.
