ABOUT OLD MISSION GAZETTE
Old Mission Gazette is an online newspaper based on the Old Mission Peninsula, north of Traverse City, Michigan, published by Old Mission Peninsula residents (Tim and Jane Boursaw). We live and work here, and we have our ear to the ground on local happenings.
In the Gazette, you’ll find Old Mission Peninsula news, thoughtful editorials, rich history (including six generations of both Tim and Jane’s families), stunning photos, profiles of Peninsula people and businesses, recaps of meetings (township, library, school, etc.), a calendar of Peninsula events, an interactive Old Mission Peninsula map, a directory of Peninsula businesses, vintage Peninsula recipes, culture news (books, movies, music) and more.
Gazette founder and editor Jane Johnson Boursaw is a lifelong resident of the Old Mission Peninsula who grew up on a cherry farm. Her brothers, Dean Johnson and Ward Johnson, continue to farm about a thousand acres in cherries, apples, grapes and other produce on the Peninsula. Jane’s sister, Carolyn Lewis, lives with her husband Steve on the way to Mission Point Lighthouse.
On the wall of the Peninsula Township Hall hangs a plaque highlighting a lifetime of community service by Jane’s dad, local historian Walter Johnson, who helped found the Purchase of Development Rights program on the Peninsula. Her mom, Mary Johnson, played the organ for 50+ years at Old Mission Peninsula United Methodist Church and served on the Peninsula Community Library Board, Old Mission Women’s Club, OMP Historical Society and many other OMP organizations.
