Welcome to Dilworth!
In 1890, a group of wealthy entrepreneurs assembled the property that makes up Dilworth as the first “suburb” of Uptown Charlotte. The rural farm land of lakes and fields would be accessed by electrified trolley’s from Uptown down South Boulevard and then turning on East Boulevard ending at Latta Park. Latta Park was a lake at that time and a fair ground was built around it as a resort amenity for the new cottages that were being built along the rail line. Dilworth was also anchored by the railroad track and factories in Southend.
When people speak of Dilworth today, it’s important to understand what “Dilworth” they’re referring to (see map). There’s Historic Dilworth….approximately 500 single family homes from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s that are built surrounding iconic Latta Park. There’s also the larger Traditional Dilworth….the commonly understood boundaries of the originally designed subdivision of Dilworth. In the more modern era, however, major road projects and other real estate developments have stretched Dilworth to an even larger area which I refer to as Modern Dilworth.
