This airport was a project of the Greater Portland Chamber of Commerce. It was the first municipal airport in the area. The airport became obsolete within ten years when larger planes required longer runways to take off and land on.

Charles Lindberg and his wife Anne Morrow were among the well known personalities to land here. Amelia Earhart and Amy Mollison also flew in here.
