History[edit]

Uzen-Takamatsu Station began operation on 23 April 1922.[2] From 1926 to 1974, the station was also used by the now-defunct Sanzan Line of the Yamagata Railway, and during that period had two opposed side platforms, and a bay platform. [3] With the privatization of JNR on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR East.[1] A new station building was completed in February 2002, replacing a previous structure dating from 1940.[citation needed]
