The first settlements that appeared in the early 19th century on the territory of modern Caribou were hunter-trapper and lumberjack camps. Between 1838 and 1840, a border conflict erupted between the United States and the British Empire, known as the Aroostook War, during which, in 1838, a bloodless skirmish took place in the Caribou region between lumberjacks from Maine and the Canadian province of New Brunswick. In 1842, the Webster-Ashburton Treaty was concluded between the conflicting parties, according to which the territory on which the city later arose was ceded to the United States.
