Lake Wales - The hills are alive with much more than music
In Lake Wales, you’ll experience why philanthropist Edward Bok, chose to build a Gothic Revival “singing” carillon bell tower in this location. Historic Bok Tower rests serenely and proudly on Iron Mountain. It is the highest point in Florida at 298 feet above sea level. Dedicated in 1929 by President Calvin Coolidge, it leaves a legacy. The gardens and musical concerts are just part of what makes Lake Wales different. Bok’s grandmother told him, “Make the world a bit better and more beautiful because you have lived in it”. Bok did it. You can continue in his vision for a peaceful community.
Amid the Golf Courses of Polk County you will find Lake Wales Country Club with a golf course that has its roots in Old Florida. The course at Lake Wales was built in 1923 and designed by Donald Ross.
