The station in June 2009, before rebuilding

The station opened on 1 November 1915 as Jōoka Station (城岡駅). It was renamed Kita-Nagaoka on 20 June 1951. With the privatization of Japanese National Railways (JNR) on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR East. A new station building was completed in July 2014.[citation needed]
