    Beginning in 2004, a group of Old Mission Peninsula residents collaborated with several local organizations to buy the Dougherty Historic Home Site, a property consisting of the 1842 home built by Reverend Peter Dougherty, a Presbyterian minister, and 15 acres of surrounding land in the village of Old Mission, Michigan. The Peter Dougherty Society is responsible for the restoration of the Dougherty House and the surrounding 15 acres. The Dougherty Historic Home Site is now open to the public, and offers tours with docent guides. Hours: Thursday-Saturday, 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM, and Sunday, 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
