Musashi-Nakahara Station opened as a station on the Nambu Railway on March 9, 1927. The Nambu Railway was nationalized on April 1, 1944, becoming part of the Japanese Government Railway (JGR) system, which became the Japanese National Railways (JNR) from 1946. Freight operations were discontinued from January 16, 1961. Along with privatization and division of JNR, JR East started operating the station on April 1, 1987. The station was rebuilt in 1990, moving 200 meters towards Musashi-Kosugi Station, and with the tracks becoming elevated.
