The Esso Station is a historic former Esso automotive service station at 287 West Main Street in Piggott, Arkansas. It is a small single-story single-room stuccoed structure, with flanking shed-roofed restroom wings on either side. The main block is fronted by plate glass windows on either side of an entrance sheltered by a small shed-roof portico. It has distinctive Colonial Revival detailing, including a row of soldier bricks at the top of the foundation, and a modillioned cornice. The station was built in 1942, and is the city's second-oldest service station building.

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000, at which time the property housed a funeral monuments business.
