Ishinomaki Station opened on October 28, 1912 on what would become the Ishinomaki Line. On November 22, 1928, Miyaden-Ishinomaki Station (宮電石巻駅) opened, served by the Miyagi Electric Railway (the present-day Senseki Line). On May 1, 1944, the Miyagi Electric Railway was nationalized and Miyaden-Ishinomaki Station was renamed Ishinomaki Station, resulting in two nearby stations both named Ishinomaki Station. On July 21, 1990, the Senseki Line and Ishinomaki Line were joined together at a single Ishinomaki Station.
