The station was opened on 10 January 1866 as Cassaba railway station and built by the Smyrna Cassaba Railway as part of their railway from Smyrna (modern day İzmir). Cassaba was the railway original terminus and one of Turkey's oldest railway stations. The railway was later extended further east to Karahisar.[2]
