This year’s annual Log Cabin Day took place on June 24, 2018 and celebrated all things related to Old Mission Peninsula history. The historic Dougherty Home on Mission Road was open for tours, as were the historic Hessler Log Cabin and Mission Point Lighthouse at the end of Center Road/M37.

The event featured vintage crafts such as chair caning, quilt-making, blacksmithing and more, as well as era-specific music and children’s games.

If you haven’t been to the Peter Dougherty Home in a while, check it out at the next available opportunity. The crew at the Peter Dougherty Society has been busy getting the home ready for tours, including adding furnishings (many of them are original furnishings, dishes, etc. from when Peter Dougherty built the home in the 1840s).

It was the first frame house between Mackinac Island and Grand Rapids, and the Society has been sorting some 900 artifacts recovered from the home and surrounding land. The home also includes a summer kitchen and ice house out back.

Hosted by the Old Mission Peninsula Historical Society, hundreds of visitors and OMP residents attended the fun event. Check out a few photos below.
