Ishinomaki Station opened on October 28, 1912 on what would become the Ishinomaki Line. On November 22, 1928, Miyaden-Ishinomaki Station (宮電石巻駅?) opened, served by the Miyagi Electric Railway (the present-day Senseki Line). On May 1, 1944, the Miyagi Electric Railway was nationalized and Miyaden-Ishinomaki Station was renamed Ishinomaki Station, resulting in two nearby stations both named Ishinomaki Station. On July 21, 1990, the Senseki Line and Ishinomaki Line were joined together at a single Ishinomaki Station.
The station and surrounding streets known as "Manga Road" are adorned with statues of characters created by Shotaro Ishinomori. The entrance to the station features characters from Cyborg 009 and Kamen Rider.
