Adeline Simms Grave Site at Range Light Park

Adeline Simms Grave Site at Range Light Park

Adeline Simms was the wife of the first lighthouse keeper at Old Range Lighthouse. She died and was buried with a Masonic emblem on her tombstone. Legend has it that the local Masons were having a meeting in the rear range light. After she overheard part of their meeting, they made her a Mason to seal her lips. Hence this is the only Masonic seal on a female grave. This site is part of Sweetwater Trail.
