Lobdell Estate, Minquadale Home, also known as the Minquadale Home for Aged Men, was a historic home and retirement home located at Wilmington, New Castle County, Delaware. It was built in 1864, and was a 2 1/2-story,five bays wide, stuccoed, and gable-roofed dwelling in the Italianate style. It featured large decorative brackets and a large cupola atop the roof. It was originally built by George Lobdell, a manufacturer of car wheels, as a summer home. In 1891, his vacation house was made over into a retirement home for Lobdell's employees of both sexes.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1] It was demolished between 1984 and 2002.
