Canton Junction is a commuter rail station on the MBTA Commuter Rail Providence/Stoughton Line, located slightly north of the Canton Viaduct and west of downtown Canton, Massachusetts.

At Canton Junction, the Stoughton Branch of the Providence/Stoughton Line splits from the Northeast Corridor and runs southeast to Stoughton, Massachusetts. The Providence section of the line follows the Northeast Corridor south to Providence, Rhode Island and beyond.

History

Canton Junction opened with the Boston and Providence Railroad in 1835; the Stoughton Branch Railroad opened in early 1845. The current station building was designed by Bradford Lee Gilbert in the Richardsonian Romanesque style and built by the Old Colony Railroad in 1892. It became part of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad a year later in 1893.
