Caldwell-Temple Building

Built 1923
National Register Building

The Caldwell-Temple Building is an example of a two-part, three-story building. The first story for many years contained the retail store of the Draper Furniture Company. One of the upper floors served in the 1920s as the meeting hall for the Masonic Lodge. At the time of its construction, this building was the largest structure in Lake Wales. Now known as the Jahna Building, it has recently been restored and is used for professional offices.
