The station was opened as Aasen on 29 October 1902 on the Hell–Sunnan Line railway line between Hell Station and Levanger Station as the section to Levanger was finished. Åsen was designed by architect Paul Due and was built with a surrounding park. In April 1921, the name of the station was changed to the current Åsen. The current building is from 1944, but it is no longer used by the railway and it is now an art gallery.[2][3]
