Kawabe Station opened on December 1, 1894 as a station on the Japanese Government Railways, the predecessor to the Japan National Railways (JNR) on the Ōu Northern Line. From August 15, 1912, a spur line opened to Kuroishi, and from September 25, 1918, the Mutsu Railway (present-day Gonō Line) began operations from Kawabe Station. On November 1, 1984, operations on the Kuroishi Line were transferred from JNR to the Konan Railway. All freight operations were discontinued from April 1987. With the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, it came under the operational control of JR East. The Kuroishi Line ceased operations from April 1, 1998.
In fiscal 2015, the station was used by an average of 310 passengers daily (boarding passengers only).
