Misawa Station was opened on 1 April 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 1 July 1906. On 4 September 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 1 October 1926 and a new station building was completed on 1 January 1959. The Tōtetsu station was renamed Misawa Station on 1 March 1961 and the JNR station followed on 20 March of the same year. With the privatization of the JNR on 1 April 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 4 December 2010, the day the Tōhoku Shinkansen was extended to Shin-Aomori. On 1 April 2012 Towada Kankō Electric Railway discontinued its railway business. The station building was expanded following the opening of a plaza extension on 4 April 2020.
Until the operational change in 2010, the JR station was served by the limited express trains Tsugaru, Hakuchō and Super Hakuchō. As of January 2021, the only JR East limited express train to stop at Misawa Station is the Resort Asunaro sightseeing train that runs between Hachinohe and Ōminato stations.
