Misawa Station was opened on April 1, 1896 as the Furumaki Station (古間木駅? Furumaki-eki) on the Nippon Railway. It became a station on the Tōhoku Main Line of Japanese Government Railways (JGR), the pre-war predecessor to the Japanese National Railways (JNR), when the Nippon Railway was nationalized on July 1, 1906. On September 4, 1922 it became a joint station, when the Towada Railway (present-day Towada Kankō Electric Railway, also known as Tōtetsu) connected Furumaki with Towadashi Station. The Tōtetsu Furumaki Station was relocated 120 meters away on October 1, 1926 and a new station building was completed on January 1, 1959. The Tōtetsu station was renamed Misawa Station on March 1, 1961 and the JNR station followed on March 20 of the same year. With the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the JNR Misawa Station came under the operational control of East Japan Railway Company (JR East) and Japan Freight Railway Company (JR Freight). Freight services were discontinued in June 2006. The control of the Tōhoku Main Line (between Hachinohe and Aomori) was transferred to Aoimori Railway on December 4, 2010, the day the Tōhoku Shinkansen was extended to Shin-Aomori. On April 1, 2012 Towada Kankō Electric Railway discontinued its railway business.
