About Lake Wales Main Street

Lake Wales Main Street is a local, private partnership organized in 1987.  In the past it was partially funded by the City of Lake Wales. Currently, we rely on memberships, sponsorship, grants and donations.

Lake Wales Main Street is recognized as one of Florida’s first Main Street programs. Today, it continues the mission of making Downtown Lake Wales an historical site destination for everyday business, shopping and leisure activities. The program utilizes National Main Street’s proven four-point method called the “Main Street Approach.”  This method offers a move toward downtown revitalization that has been successful in more than one thousand towns and cities throughout the country.
