Lake Mirror Historic Tours:

“From Past to the Present”

Stacy Smith - presenter


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 for the City of Lakeland’s Parks and Recreation Department for 29 years. He has been assigned to Hollis Garden since 2000 and currently serves there as a Foreman. Over the past 9 years, Stacy conducted extensive research on the history surrounding Lake Mirror, including personal visits to the Filson Historic Society in Louisville, Kentucky, the home of two prominent Lakeland founders, Abraham Munn and John Morton.
