The community is named after James Brudenell, 5th Earl of Cardigan, later Duke of Montague. Situated on the Cardigan River and originally named Cardigan Bridge, the community started and grew as a result of the shipbuilding industry and lumber trade.

Today the community's primary industry is manufacturing, followed by fishing, most notably mussels and clams.

The community is also home to Canada's smallest library.[1]
