The Lorelton is truly unique. Privately owned by a local foundation not a corporation. Not-for-Profit and affordable. The Lorelton is considered to be in 'the Suburbs' of the city. Conveniently located near stores, restaurants, banks or anything else you may need whether for fun or necessity.
Considered to be the "Art District", The Lorelton is situated in Little Italy directly across from a community park, and beautiful church. The Lorelton is listed on Wilmington's Historic Registry, having originally been the Charles B. Lore Elementary School which looks and feels like a castle. When entering, one instantly senses welcome, warmth, individuality and an unpretentious sense of elegance. We are a privately owned and non-profit, one-of-a-kind community with an exemplary reputation throughout the area & within the industry. Our light-drenched apartments with stunningly huge windows, big sills and 21 foot ceilings have more of a 'feel' of space than any competitor. The Lorelton has 82 apartments each with unique floor-plans. Our original Manor-style library, w/fireplace, serves as the resident's own private space w/a large, 'living room feel. We also have our "man cave" with pool table and electronic darts. This is a money-saving highlight when needing a little extra space for a party or meeting. Our fountain courtyard is well-loved here while incorporating ample seating & and walkways w/flower, fruit & vegetable gardens. Our indoor greenhouse is used year-round & always thriving. Our guest accommodations act as a nice refuge for friends or family coming from out-of-town wherein a full, furnished apartment awaits at below normal pricing. Our monthly art exhibits feature many area artists who host beautiful receptions displaying their works. Pets are welcome yet sensible restrictions apply. Our lobbies & activity areas provide pianos, organs, juke box, books, games, video library, internet, billiards, vending machines, gift shop, displays of collectibles, etc. Our dining room is absolutely gorgeous and the menu vast. Features abound making The Lorelton quite impressive!

    Just like home. Very good care and workers and the food is delicious. They always have luncheons and parties and the family is invited to come and participate.
