The station was built in 1871 by the Toronto and Nipissing Railway, which was taken over by the Grand Trunk Railway, which ultimately became part of the Canadian National Railway in 1923. It has been designated as a heritage railway station by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada.
The city of Markham purchased the building as a Millennium project and are undertaking its restoration in conjunction with the Markham Village Conservancy, which manages the station. In addition to facilities for GO Transit, the building is used as community centre, with two rooms with a capacity of either 100 or 30 people, available for rental.
Markham Station does not have a bus terminal. Connecting bus services serve on-street stops adjacent to the station.
