The land around the present city of Lake Wales was surveyed in 1879 by Sidney Irving Wailes, who changed the name of the lake from which the city gets its name, from Watts Lake to Lake Wailes. When the city was established in 1911, the spelling was Lake Wales, although the earlier spelling is still generally used for the lake. The city is located in Polk County, Florida.
