In 1839 the Reverend Peter Dougherty founded Old Mission, the first Protestant mission in the Grand Traverse Area. The church, comprising Indians and whites, was organized in 1843. After 1850 the Indians were allowed to buy land; they and the church moved to Omena, or New Mission in 1852. This church, resembling those of New England, was built and dedicated in1858. Since the 1880s it is used mostly in summer. It remains relatively unchanged from the original.
