Built in 1884 for $16,500, Recitation Hall (now Old Main) has been part of MLC’s culture for 140 years. In its first years, it served as an all-in-one facility to serve the school.

Old Main houses MLC’s print services department, several education divisions, and classrooms today.

In celebration of 140 years, we invite you to share your memories of Old Main. Click here or email your Old Main memory to Michelle Markgraf, director of Alumni Relations, at

We hope to see you here on the hill as we celebrate God’s blessings with another group of graduates.
