The station was originally named Mattetuck, and opened on July 29, 1844. It was rebuilt in 1878 and remodeled in 1944. The station house was closed in 1959 and razed in July 1967, but the station still remained active. When Cutchogue station was closed in June 1962, Mattituck station became one of two replacements, the other being the former Peconic station, which itself closed sometime in 1970. The station contained a total of three "produce storage" facilities, which still exists today, one of which is a real estate office. A new station with high-level platforms was built between 2000 and 2001, which many stations on the LIRR were getting at the time.
