The Silver Spring Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Station is a historic building located at Silver Spring, Montgomery County, Maryland. It was built in 1945 on the foundation of the original station, a Victorian-style brick structure built in 1878. It was designed in the Colonial Revival style and built from standardized plans developed for B&O stations in the mid-1940s. Amtrak's Blue Ridge previously served the station, and have since dropped the stop from its timetables.

Passenger train service at the station ended in 2000, and trains now stop at Silver Spring station, the nearby, similarly-named MARC and Washington Metro station. The 1945 station was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000 and restored in 2002.

The original 1940s waiting room furniture remains in the station, as are the original recessed fluorescent lighting fixtures. The Eastbound Waiting Room, a small rectangular building of similar design, stood on the south side of the tracks until it was lost to redevelopment in 2008. Originally built along with the station in 1945, it was razed and rebuilt in 1976, to make way for tracks laid for the Washington Metro. An underground pedestrian tunnel connecting the two buildings beneath the track bed still exists, but is closed to the public. The station is owned by Montgomery Preservation, Inc., a non-profit organization, which opens the building for tours.
