Borden-Carleton

(3.7/5 based on 50+ reviews for 5 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, shopping, museums
Borden-Carleton is a Canadian town located on the south shore of Prince Edward Island, fronting on the Northumberland Strait.The town was originally incorporated under community status on April 12, 1995 through the amalgamation of the Town of Borden and the Community of Carleton. The town of Borden opted to demote its status to a community in light of a declining tax base with the pending completion of the Confederation Bridge and the closure of the Marine Atlantic ferry service. The community subsequently changed to town status on July 31, 2012.HistoryBorden traces its history to Prince Edward Island's requirements for transportation to mainland North America whereas Carleton was a surrounding farming community to the north and west of the port.Borden's development is related to the fall of fortunes for another nearby community during the First World War. A winter iceboat service crossed the Abegweit Passage between nearby Cape Traverse to Cape Tormentine, New Brunswick for many decades during the 19th century and early 20th century. The Prince Edward Island Railway built a line from its mainline near Emerald Junction to the Cape Traverse wharf to facilitate this traffic in the 1880s.
