This study aims to examine the history of urban space by investigating the historical traces of the object of this research, Cianjur Railway Station, to find its role as a new element in the colonial period. The method is qualitative with station studies in colonial urban spaces with analytical descriptive in presenting findings related to the relationship between the railway's station and the development of agro-industries in Cianjur in its role as colonial city elements.
