Regarding North Creek Railway Station. Listed on the State and National Registrar, the North Creek Railroad Station Complex is located in the Hamlet of North Creek in the Town of Johnsburg, Warren County, New York. It is in the southeast portion of the Adirondack Forest Preserve with more or less rural lands to the south and east. The railroad line hugs the western shore of the Hudson River, traversing North Creek on its way to Tahawus. The station complex is at the northern end of the hamlet of North Creek on the West Bank of the Hudson.
Architecturally a fine example of the typical rural station of the period, the North Creek station has remained almost completely unaltered since the day it was built in 1874. The whole complex, consisting of the station, old station, freight house, round house, tool house, turntable and horse barn, is remarkably intact and provides an interesting record of railroad history.
