The station opened on 26 February 1911 as part of the Nord-Sud Company's line B from Saint-Lazare to Porte de Saint-Ouen. It was the terminus of the northern branch of the line until 30 June 1952 when the line was extended to Carrefour Pleyel. On 27 March 1931 line B became line 13 of the Métro. The station is named after the Porte de Saint-Ouen, a gate in the nineteenth century Thiers wall of Paris, which led to Saint-Ouen.
