The station was opened on 15 November 1907 as part of the extension of line 5 from Lancry (now Jacques Bonsergent) to Gare du Nord. The line 4 platforms were opened on 21 April 1908 as part of the first section of the line from Châtelet to Porte de Clignancourt. The line 7 platforms were opened on 5 November 1910 as part of the first section of the line from Opéra to Porte de la Villette.
It is connected to the mainline Gare de l'Est railway station, literally station of the east. The name Verdun refers to the Avenue de Verdun, in memory of the World War I Battle of Verdun to which French soldiers were sent from the railway station. In 2004 it was the fifth busiest station network, with 15.66 million inward passengers. Lines 5 and 7 are parallel, running as four lines with a central platform with two faces and two outer platforms. Line 4 runs under 5 and 7 perpendicularly.
