Mobara Station opened on 17 April 1897, as Mohara Station (茂原駅, Mohara-eki) on the Bōsō Railway. It was absorbed into the Japanese Government Railways on 1 September 1907. From 1909 to 1926 it was also the terminal of the Chōnan-Mobara-Kan Jinsha Kidō (庁南茂原間人車軌道), a human-powered railway extending to Chōnan, Chiba. On 1 August 1930, the station became the terminus of the Nansō Railway (南総鉄道, Nansō Tetsudō), which became the Sotobō Line from 1939. It was renamed to its present name on 10 July 1935. It joined the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japanese National Railways (JNR) on 1 April 1987.
