Borden traces its history to PrinceEdwardIsland's requirements for transportation to mainland North America whereas Carleton was a surrounding farming community to the north and west of the port.
The SS PrinceEdwardIsland arrived in the Northumberland Strait in 1915 during the early years of the war but the port at Carleton Point had not been constructed, so the vessel operated in year-round service out of Charlottetown and Georgetown from 1915 until the port at Carleton Point was ready.
After the SS PrinceEdwardIsland was modified by CNR in the 1920s to accept automobiles in addition to rail cars (after PEI legalized the use of automobiles), roads connecting to the port were improved.
