The folks at the historic Dougherty Mission House have added a pavilion in honor of Bill Cole, who worked tirelessly for years to help restore the house and bring the museum to fruition. Bill passed away in 2020. The pavilion project was chosen by the Cole family and designed by Marty Klein.

I believe the Dougherty tours have finished up for the season, but if you haven’t toured the house yet, be sure and schedule a stop there when they open up again in the spring. The house is a living memorial to Peter Dougherty and his work on the Old Mission Peninsula.

They are also always looking for docents, too, if you have a couple extra hours to spare here and there.

Check out the photos of the Cole Pavilion below. Read the captions for more info.
