Norfolk Southern Passenger Station is a historic train station located at Elizabeth City, Pasquotank County, North Carolina. It was built in 1914 by the Norfolk Southern Railway, and is a long one-story brick building with eclectic Mission Revival style design elements. It measures 98 feet by 36 feet, with a small projecting control booth. It is topped by a tall hipped roof sheathed in clay tile. Passenger service at Elizabeth City ceased in early 1948, and the building subsequently housed a variety of commercial businesses.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.[1]
