Laconia Passenger Station is a historic railroad station in Laconia, New Hampshire built for the Boston and Maine in 1892. Bradford Gilbert, the station's architect, is best known for designing the first steel-framed curtain wall building, the Tower Building in New York, but also designed a number of railroad stations, at least five of which are on the National Register.

At its dedication in August 1892, the Laconia Democrat described it as follows

The main features of the building are the port-cochere at the entrance and the large general waiting room or rotunda, open to the roof, with clerestory windows on all sides. The floor of this room is of tile, and the wall to a height of ten feet are finished in quartered oak, and above that plastered and tinted in two shades of chrome.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
