Walker was nominated to be inducted into the Hall of Fame and later voted to receive the honor in 2014. She will be honored at the December 2 meeting of the Lake County Commission in Tavares at 9am.
Dolores Gano Walker has been a fixture at the Historic Village since its inception and was one of the founding members of the South Lake Historical Society. Visitors to the Village will often find her at the entrance to the "Little Cooper" memorial Library building which was moved to the location a few years ago and restored.
Walker recounts the history of the building and the area in general. The Gano family, once spelled Ganeaux, moved to the area in the 1800's.
She currently serves at Honorary Historian for the City of Clermont and was one of the speakers at the celebration of the library's 100th anniversary.
