Northern Michigan is full of history especially out on the Old Mission Peninsula where the Dougherty Mission House lies.
The Dougherty house was built in 1842 by Reverend Peter Dougherty along with an Ojibwe Village lead by Chief Aghosa. Since then, people in the the Grand Traverse area have come together to raise money and efforts to restore this historical home.
Our Lifestyle Reporter, Rachel Rademacher went to the house to get a sneak peak into what you can expect from a tour of the home that they offer on Fridays and Saturdays.
