If you happened to see a listing in other local media sites that Log Cabin Day is happening this Sunday, hold the phone! While the annual event has historically been held on the last Sunday in June, that is not the case this year.

Hosted by the Old Mission Peninsula Historical Society, this year’s event has shifted to Sunday, August 29, 2021, due to ongoing pandemic concerns, and will be called “Harvesting History.” (Last year’s event was cancelled.)

Along with the traditional crafters and demonstrations we’ve enjoyed in previous years (see 2019 photos here), this year’s event will be expanded and held at a variety of locations, including the Hessler Log Cabin, Mission Point Lighthouse, Dougherty Mission House and the Log Church, located just north of the Old Mission General Store.

And new this year, we can add Peninsula Community Library, the historic “Council Tree” location, Old Mission Congregational Church (to be determined), and Peninsula Fire Station No. 3 to the lineup.

Stay tuned to Old Mission Gazette for more details to come, but put that date on your calendar for “Harvesting History” – August 29, 2021.
