The station was opened on 7 October 1902 as part of the extension of line 2 from Étoile to Anvers. The Boulevard was named after the Barrière de Courcelles, a gate built for the collection of taxation as part of the Wall of the Farmers-General; the gate was built between 1784 and 1788 and demolished in 1859.
