The staff at Dwight Mission, northwest of Sallisaw, will conduct free tours of the facility on March 24 to introduce the public to mission renovations and extend invitations to the many summer camps available.
Dwight Mission was established in 1820 as a school for Cherokee children, and evolved later into a camp and conference center.
