Rowland Cabin is an historic building moved to the MPCS campus by the Murray family, who owned the property before it became the school grounds. The Murrays also constructed a six-acre lake around the same time they had the cabin moved from North Carolina in 1949. Today, the cabin is home to the high school Directed Studies program, and the lake is utilized for physical education courses and summer programs.

Lake McDonald

Six-acre Lake McDonald is not only a beautiful reminder of God's creation, but also an important resource for students, including physical education courses, the MPC fishing team, middle school House STEAM competitions, picnics, and summer programs.
