Originally known as Fairbanks for its founder Dennis Fairbanks, it was settled in 1828 in land that was unknown to be part of British North America (Canada) or the United States. The Aroostook War broke out in 1838 because of boundary disputes between the two countries, which were resolved in 1842 by the Webster-Ashburton Treaty. The township was incorporated from Plantations F, G and H on April 4, 1859 as Presque Isle, the French term for peninsula (presqu'île), as the courses of the Aroostook River and Presque Isle Stream form a peninsula here.
According to the US census, the city has a total area of 77.6 square miles, of which, 75.8 square miles is land and 1.8 square miles (2.32%) is water. Presque Isle is drained by the Aroostook River and Presque Isle Stream.
