The name is derived from the wild carrots growing along the river, which in 1911 the first homesteaders crossed and then settled on the north bank.
Settlement was slow until the Canadian National Railroad reached the Carrot River site in 1931 bringing southern farmers seeking new locations away from the great drought on the prairies.
Carrot River became a Village in 1941 and incorporated as a Town on April 01, 1948.
