Pawtucket-Central Falls Railroad Station
The Pawtucket-Central Falls Railroad Station, built in 1915, is architecturally significant as a distinguished (if now deteriorated) example of early-twentieth century railroad station design, particularly notable for its powerful, clearly articulated massing and for the grand spatial conception of its interior, truly one of the finest public spaces ever created in Pawtucket or Central Falls. Additionally, the station has a significant place in the history of transportation in Pawtucket and Central Falls (and in Rhode Island) as a last dramatic symbol of that important era in history when the railroad was the principal link to the outside world for both cities' workers and manufacturers . The building was determined eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places under criteria A and C by the Keeper of the National Register on August 11, 1997.
