Lake Mirror Historic Tours:
“From Past to the Present”
Stacy Smith -
This is the tale of a lake at the center of
downtown Lakeland and the people, buildings and businesses that have graced its
shores throughout the years. You will be guided along a leisurely half mile
walking tour of local history where you will discover the many contributions
that individuals have made to Lake Mirror and our community. We hope you share
stories of your own and help continue this revolving walk through time.
Stacy Smith has worker
