Kensington station opened on 1 November 1860 as part of the private Melbourne and Essendon Railway Company line to Essendon. The station closed with the line in 1864, but was reopened in 1871 under government ownership. The Melbourne-bound station building was constructed in 1886, as was the signal box beside the Kensington Road level crossing. The gates at the crossing were replaced by boom barriers in 1966.
