Township was organized as a Township in 1912 and prior to that time
existed as unorganized territory. The settling of Mission Township
was much like many of the other areas surrounding the Township which
was spurred by logging, trapping, and other early economic endeavors.
In the mid-Twentieth Century, Mission Township began to develop
along many of its shorelines while much of the development withinthe
Township remained predominately as large-tract rural developments.
This shoreline development included mostly small cabins and recreational
or seasonal homes through later in the Century. Beginning around
1990, Mission Township began experiencing tremendous growth in the
number of permanent residents which also brought a conversion of
small cabins and recreational dwellings to large year-round homes.
This trend is continuing today.
