This building is a replica of the original mission church which was erected in 1839 by the Reverend Peter Dougherty, a Presbyterian missionary, who came here from Mackinaw to establish the first mission in this part of the country. Originally the building stood on the bayshore but later was moved to this site where it remained for many years. The bell which is now in the belfry is the original bell of the old church.
Mrs. Bertha Gilmore
a longtime resident of
Old Mission Peninsula,
donated the land for this replica
in 1939
