Historic Presque Isle hotel to reopen with new restaurant and social mission

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — One of Presque Isle’s newest business ventures is banking on an idea from Peru and Jamaica to infuse new life into the downtown and bring a 90-year-old landmark into the 21st century.

Ignite Presque Isle, a nonprofit community development organization, acquired the historic Northeastland Hotel last year and has been renovating the building. The group looks toward a fall opening for a new restaurant and a business collaboration center.  

The hotel is one of the latest projects the city of Presque Isle has supported toward its  goal of revitalizing the downtown and making it more business and community friendly.
