Airport history: In 1954, Carroll Peacock purchased the land and built a 1200ft runway. In 1958, the FAA extended the runway 880 ft giving the total runway length now 2,080 ft. Mr. Peacock then donated the runway to the Town of Lubec. The runway lights and wiring were replaced in 1972. In 2018, an upgrade took place thanks to Cobscook Shores Inc contributions. A new building was purchased to house the electrical components, a new beacon and windsock was installed on mast, and new radio equipment for the runway lights activation was installed. In 2021, the Town of Lubec began working with some local donors to upgrade the wiring and runway lights/approach lights as the 2nd and final phase for upgrades. The upgrades were completed in November of 2021.
