Limestone Sign

Welcome to Limestone!

The town of Limestone was incorporated in 1869, and has had a greatly fluctuating population over the years due to the operation and closure of the former Loring Air Force Base and, interestingly, due to three Phish concerts which caused the town to briefly become the most populous in Maine.

Although it is a small town today, Limestone is home to some surprising big things, including the giant Loring Commerce Center and the Aroostook National Wildlife Refuge, which both occupy parts of the former Loring Air Force Base, and the Maine School of Science and Mathematics, ranked one of the top schools in the country. The town is also home to Steve Bartalo of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and allegedly the world’s best potatoes, a staple crop in Aroostook county.
