Presque Isle is the commercial center and largest city in Aroostook County, Maine, United States. The population was 9,692 at the 2010 census. The city is home to the University of Maine at Presque Isle, Northern Maine Community College, Husson University Presque Isle, Northern Maine Fairgrounds, The Aroostook Centre Mall, and the Northern Maine Regional Airport.Presque Isle is the headquarters of the federally recognized tribe, the Aroostook Band of Micmac.HistoryThe first pioneers, who were British loyalist, reached the area in 1819 hoping to obtain land for lumber. Though, border disputes between in the United States and Great Britain over the area made it impossible for pioneers to gain titles for the land. In response, the neighboring now Canadian province of New Brunswick gave out patents for pioneers to live on the land but not claim ownership or sell it. By 1825 surveyors traveling along the Aroostook river noted that twenty families lived along it and noted that while agriculture was present, all of the family employed most of their time towards lumber.
