Inscription. Gravel Range Lodge No. 59 was granted dispensation on June 29, 1854. The charter was granted May 4, 1855. There was an original membership of 28 members. The first meetings were held over a store, which was later destroyed by fire. There were three other buildings that were all destroyed by fires until the present building was completed in 1948. Forest Lodge No. 66 was consolidated with Gravel Range in 1955, and both celebrated 100 years of Masonry in 1954. In 2002 Gravel Range Lodge and Mtn. Shade Lodge of Downieville, consolidated and became Mtn. Range No. 18. This plaque was set on July 30, 2004 in rededication ceremonies conducted by Howard D. Kirkpatrick, Grand Master of Masons in California and Gary L. Schlusser, Master of Mtn. Range Lodge.
