by a core group of citizens concerned about saving the Hessler Log
House, the Old Mission Peninsula Historical Society continues to work
toward fulfilling its mission of preserving historical structures
and keeping alive the history of the region. We recently joined
Peninsula Township in the successful effort to raise the money
necessary to purchase, and thus preserve, the Peter Dougherty
Homestead, along with the fifteen acres it sits on. Dougherty
founded the mission that gives our peninsula here in northwest lower
Michigan its name. When the house is fully renovated, we will
develop and administer the programs that will be open to the
public. With the Hessler Log House, the Dougherty Homestead will
serve as visible reminders of the rich history of this area.

newsletters, and other material, and consider joining us.
We meet the first Thursday of every month in the old Town Hall, 13235
Center Road. Each meeting features a program
on some topic
of local history.
