    Dougherty Mission HouseLocated on Old Mission Peninsula and originally built in 1842, the Dougherty Mission House site is an historical, cultural, educational and community center as well as a museum for all visitors. The grounds include the Heritage Trail and Disabled Trail, as well as gardens which reflect farming in the late 19th Century. The Dougherty Mission House was placed on the National Historic Register in 2011, securing its proper place as a significant part of Michigan and Native American history. It's also a part of the Michigan Historic Preservation Network, placing the home and property in conservancy.
