  • Lake Wales City Hall

    Lake Wales City Hall was built in 1928 by the Frost Construction Company of Tampa.

    Incorporated in 1917, Lake Wales’ first administrative offices were located on the second floor of the Lake Wales State Bank. But in the mid-1920s, with the Florida Land Boom in full swing the need for a larger building was evident. \n\nIn 1927, the city of Lake Wales sold a $30,000 bond issue to underwrite construction of a larger municipal building. The Frost Construction Company of Tampa was awarded the building contract. The building was completed in 1928.
