2013 Rededication

Langford’s memory had grown dimmer, but not forgotten, some 60 years after the promenade’s 1946 dedication. In 2013, Lakeland locals spearheaded an effort to return a marker lost during renovations. Just after the 100th anniversary of her birth, and 57 years after the original dedication, the City of Lakeland agreed to rededicate the Frances Langford Promenade. Funds were raised for the new marker and it was installed in November 2013.
