Gibraltar Points light house keeper was john Rademuller from 1808-1815. Rademuller was a well known beer smuggler at the time.  But for reasons unknown, Rademuller once refused to serve beer to a group of soldiers, the soldiers didn’t take too kindly to that. So to make sure they got the beer they went to the rather extreme method of chopping him to pieces, with an axe and then burying his body parts around the lighthouse.

Apparitions have also been known to wander the grounds.
