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.)
Old Mission Gazette is Reader Supported.

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.
Stay tuned to Old Mission Gazette for more details to come, but put that date on your calendar for “Harvesting History” – August 29, 2021.
A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers like the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, and magazines like Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So of course, I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the Old Mission Peninsula.
