Stone faces line the exterior of Bay View High School.

With the start of the new school year, WUWM’s Bubbler Talk probes a school-related question. Asker Mike Osowski wants to know the story behind Bay View High School’s many stone faces.

More than 160 of them adorn the building, with most along its upper edge, but others around the doorways.

There may be even more concrete faces, those were just the ones we were able to count. Others may be hidden, due to the addition MPS tacked onto the school in the mid-1970s.

“They all have very animated, human-like faces, and some have props with them like scrolls or musical instruments,” Osowski says.

But, why are they there?
