Kita-Noshiro Station was opened on April 26, 1926 as Ugo-Shinonome Station (羽後東雲駅) on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR), serving the village of Shinonome, Akita. It was renamed to its present name on June 15, 1943; the JGR became the JNR (Japan National Railways) after World War II. With the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station has been managed by JR East. A new station building was completed in 2009, replacing the modified boxcar which had previously been in use.
