Adeline Simms Grave Site

The grave of Adeline Sims, wife of range light Keeper William Sims, is located to the side of the keeper's path (at the Range Light Park) in a small, fenced-in area. Legend has it that while her husband and fellow Masons held meetings in the rear range light, she overheard and memorized secret passages. To seal her lips, she was made a member. Adeline Sims died an invalid in 1881, and was buried with a Masonic emblem on her gravestone. Sims is the only woman so honored by the Masons.
