A great hometown debate – Lake Francis or Frances?

Located on Lake Shore Drive, just east of Duval Street, there is a small body of water known as Lake Frances. That's right, Frances. If you have been spelling it Lake Francis, do not worry. You are certainly not alone. The Florida Memory Website, Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission and several business signs in town use the “-is” spelling form. This confusion may have been derived from seemingly conflicting signs around the lake. In the dock vicinity, the name of the lake is spelled out on the sidewalk, “Lake Frances,” but a road that dead-ends into the lake is spelled, “Francis Street.” After much reading, chatting and researching, however, the much debated name of our hometown lake seems to have been settled.
