Also known as the Penn Central Railway Station is the Michigan Central Railroad Depot in Battle Creek, Michigan. It was opened for services in 1888 using a historical structure designed by Rogers and MacFarlane architectural firm in the Richarsonian-Romanesque style. This made this building one of the numerous stations with such architecture in Detroit and Chicago during the late 19th century.

The Michigan Central Railroad Depot also boasts of having been visited by former presidents Howard Taft, Gerald Ford, and Thomas Edison. It was used by New York Central Railroad, Amtrak, and Penn Central.

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1971 and declared a Michigan State Historic Site in 1970, the Michigan Central Railroad Depot is now home to the restaurant Clara?s on the River.
