Grand Isle is a town in Aroostook County, incorporated on March 2, 1869 from Grant Isle Plantation. The name was changed to Grand Isle in 1872. It commemorates the large and fertile island within the town and in the middle of the St. John River just south of the village of Lille. Lille is home to an extraordinary Catholic church, a nationally recognized historic place.
