The Smiling Stones are a series of strange carved stones found in central Massachusetts that are baffling researchers. So far, 4-5 of these granite stones have been found.
The stones have been described as being made of granite and ranging from 6-25 pounds. They all possess odd smiley faces with deep sunken eyes and wide grinning mouths. These faces do not appear to have been carved by hand, but rather chipped away by other stones.
There are several explanations as to what the phenomenon could be. Theories include:
- Native American art
- A hoax
- Local Native American tribes have stated that the stones are not their doing.
