Significance: The Lindale House and its outbuildings are a rare surviving example of the entire complex of a Delaware peach farm. Built for John B. Lindale, who is often described as the last of the great peach "barons," it was one of the last of such complexes to be constructed. The house is a fine example of high Victorian architecture, built in the Queen Anne Revival style with some classical revival details around 1905. The architect was Charles G. Fisher; the builder is said to have been Samuel Minner.
