This small airport was part of a massive upgrading of the airports in the state after a January 1934 survey by Capt. Harry M. Jones with the intention of building a chain of airports in coastal towns, inland towns, and lake resorts. The airfield was originally built in 1935 by the Maine Emergency Relief Administration, a state division of the Federal Emergency Relief Administration. It built 1 NW – SE 2,300 x 300 graded runway. It was listed as Calais in the MERA report. “St. Croix Airport apparently was closed at some point between 1996-2004.”
