Lansdale Station - nestled along the Lansdale/Doylestown Regional Rail Line - is one of nine properties chosen for the nationwide register by the National Park Service. It is the 159th Montgomery County property to be included on the register and Lansdale's third! The other two are the Jenkins Homestead, added in 1977, and the Silk Factory Lofts, added in 2004.

The station's status on the register was originally announced in December 2021. 

The effort to place SEPTA's Lansdale Station on the National Register began more than two years ago. The Lansdale Historical Society along with assistance from historic preservationist David Kimmerly spearheaded this process.

Construction of the station began in 1902 and took a year to complete - replacing a combination passenger and freight depot built in 1868. The current station received major restoration work during the 1990s and with its distinctive architectural features still looks much as it did in 1903.
