Ōhata Village was founded in 1889. It was elevated to town status on May 1, 1934.
On March 14, 2005, Ōhata, along with the neighboring town of Kawauchi, and the village of Wakinosawa (all from Shimokita District), was merged into the neighboring and expanded city of Mutsu, and thus no longer exists as an independent municipality.
Ōhata was served by Route 279 (Japan) highway, but no railway service. Formerly (from 1939 to 2001), the Ōhata Line connected Ōhata Station with Shimokita Station via eight stations. The train has now been replaced by a bus service.
