true north usa has offices at 225 East Stuart Avenue in the middle of The National Historic District of downtown Lake Wales, Florida. We feel very fortunate and proud
to work in this incredibly charming historic building purchased by TNUSA
Holdings, LLC in 2006. The building has a rich and memorable past including being
the Lake Wales Rexal Drug store for many years and as such, the home of
the towns favorite soda fountain and a frequent meeting spot for Lake Wales families and
businessmen alike for decades.
The drug store building was purchased in the mid 80's by Lake Wales' and
Florida's favorite son Robin Gibson . It was
converted into one of his first law offices and resulted in an architecturally
rich and interesting workspace due to Robin's distinctive touch and the
brilliance of his architect.
It contains a dramatic naturally lighted core, large executive offices, as well as a stunning two story law library,
loft and conference room with Robin's original law library books still warmly adorning the shelves. Obviously from the pictures above, you can see that we enjoy Robin's legacy everyday we
come to work.
