Long Description:
The train station in Westfield was built around 1904 for the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad. The architect is unknown, but the style is based on the stations of the 1880s designed by H.H. Richardson and his Richardson Romanesque style of architecture. The station served as an important transfer station for travelers going to the Chautauqua Institution. The Westfield stage linked the major east/west line of the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad with the Jamestown, Chautauqua, and Lake Erie Railroad, which was the only rail line that went directly to the Institute.
