The narrow-gauge railway buildings were built in 1900–1905. The arrangement consists of three rectangular buildings: a single-storey storage, a single-storey station and a two-storey administration building.
The square two-storey administration building had a huge attic with a gambrel roof, featuring characteristics of the Material Style (Materialstil). In 1947–1952 the premises were rearranged into apartments. The rectangular symmetrical storage with a gable roof was built according to the Material Style. The works were implemented by the Railway's Joint Stock Company, supervised by Paul Richter from Ragainė. The narrow-gauge railway forked along Kelmiškė, with one track taking to Laugaliai through Dovilai and the other – to Plikiai. During the World War I the railway bridge across Danė River was bombed and the railway was almost unused. There was also a narrow-gauge railway branch taking to the gas factory and the slaughterhouse. The section between Smeltė and Klaipėda Narrow Gauge Railway Station was also used by the city tram. After the World War II the railway tracks were dismantled and the building of the narrow-gauge railway station was used for other purposes.
These buildings are a valuable example of a typical early 20th c. architecture and arrangement of the station and its auxiliary buildings. It is also a valuable part of the city.
Currently (2017) the one-storey dark red brick building of the narrow-gauge railway station hosts the XIX Amžius restaurant.
