The station catered to a local community that had a substantial industry during the era of the NYCRR. The train station was originally opened in 1905, when the New York Central Railroad (NYCRR) created tracks up to Chatham. The line provided both passenger and freight train services. Ghent was the station that served both the Harlem Division and the former Boston and Albany Railroad Hudson Branch.
However, with the demise of the NYCRR Passenger services in 1972, the station was closed for passengers and provided freight only services. Ghent provided commercial freight services until 1980, when the tracks north of Wassaic were dismantled. The Harlem Valley Rail Trail Association plans to extend the trail along the right-of-way in front of the site of the former station.
