The Winona and St. Peter Railroad Freight House is a former freight house in Winona, Minnesota, United States. Built from 1882 to 1883, it is the city's last surviving freight facility of the Winona and St. Peter Railroad. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984 for having local significance in the theme of transportation. It was nominated as a symbol of the Winona and St. Peter Railroad, which was instrumental in spurring Winona's industry and growth by developing markets along its rail lines across Minnesota and into Dakota Territory.
