Inscription.

In 1922, the Susquehanna and New York (S & NY) constructed this building, smaller than the freight depot, (20' by 84'). This one-story building of steel lath covered with stucco has an asbestos roof. The station had three rooms: ticket office, freight room and a passenger waiting room. The building was "city steam heated and electric lighted." The Postal Telegraph Cable Co. also had an office in the new station.

The main passenger depot for the rail lines was located in the northern part of Towanda Borough, just south of the present day Sylvania plant near the intersection of Hawes Street and Packer Avenue.
