Peninsula Township is a civil township of Grand Traverse County in the U.S. state of Michigan.
Old Mission is an unincorporated community in the township near the end of the peninsula on the east arm of the bay at 44°57′44″N, 85°29′07″W.
In 1852 Rev. Dougherty decided to move his mission across the west bay along the Leelanau Penisula to an existing native American village at the site of modern Omena, Michigan, thus establishing a "New Mission." The previous community was therefore already known as the "Old Mission" in the early 1850s.
