The former site of the Michigan School for the Deaf and Blind has been transformed into a state-of-the-art high school campus. Faye Hall now houses Powers Catholic classrooms and has been restored to much of its original design. A modern expansion houses gymnasium, library, cafeteria, and chapel. An abundance of natural light and views provide outstanding learning in a historic setting. The new MSD K-12 school building includes a Cafetorium, Gymnasium, Collaborative Media Center, 2-story classroom wing, and is accessible to the existing dormitory via the enclosed hall. The superintendent’s cottage is the oldest building on the campus. All of the woodwork was done by the students at the school’s cabinet shop. The 2 1/2-story brick Queen Anne Style design rests on a fieldstone foundation, a large porch wraps into a porte-cochere. Various bays and balconies feature decorated windows, gable ornaments, and detailed wood brackets.
