The property includes the passenger depot and brick freight house both constructed in 1911, tracks, a concrete bumper post, a semaphore signal, a portion of the entrance drive, and four period rail cars. The station's plan is based largely on one designed by Henry Hobson Richardson for the 1884 station at Auburndale, Massachusetts, which was demolished in 1961 after 80 years in service.
When the Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh Railway (BR&P) was acquired by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, Orchard Park Station became a B&O station. The station terminated passenger service in the 1950s before the merger between B&O and C&O into the Chessie System. Freight service operated from Orchard Park until 1979. The station was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.
