|Mission Lake, Northern Country|
The city had a city hall, church, medical center, busy dowotown corridor with shops, police department and large fire station. There were numerous hotels in the city. Homes surrounded the city. The climate in the city was seasonably warmer then nearby Rubicon which made it a popular place to settle.
A major highway system ran through the town from Rubicon and connected it to important locations such as Seahurst, Davis, and Congress. The highway made Mission Lake a junction for people traveling on roads heading either east, west, or north. This helped the growth of Mission Lake, espcially in later years. The Sunset Highway and Davis Highway both started in Mission Lake.
