Arranged alphabetically. The Presque Isle office was established in 1979 to serve the people of Aroostook County.

The bulk of the records in this category are about Loring, and records include petitions from constituents seeking to keep Loring open; agendas and minutes of the Loring Development Authority of Maine; reports and statements concerning the environmental impact of the closing; and files that document suggestions for the potential reuse of the base.
