Last year, we posted a story about when Center Road was built back in the 1940s (read it here). The story originated from the Boursaw family archives, when we came across some pictures of my husband Tim’s grandpa, Wellington Gray Draper, who was a project manager with the Michigan State Highway Department.
While some of the photo locations were easily recognizable, namely near the intersection of Center Road and Seven Hills Road, there was one photo that sent Tim and I on an expedition around the Old Mission Peninsula trying to figure out where it was taken. (Full disclosure: Driving around the Peninsula is one of our favorite things to do.)

We did finally figure it out. Partly when I had a lightbulb moment about where it might be located, and partly when we ran across the person who now lives there and confirmed that it was indeed their house.
We thought it might be fun to put the question out to you, dear readers, to see if you know where the photo was taken. Again, this was taken in the 1940s somewhere on the Old Mission Peninsula, and things may have changed a bit between then and now.
