Historic Dilworth – Worth A Visit to Charlotte!

Historic DILWORTH

One of Charlotte’s Premier Communities – Worth a Visit to Charlotte!

What’s not to love about Dilworth?

Bungalows in Charlotte North Carolina's Dilworth CommunityCharlotte’s city  government was originally supported simply by a mayor, a recorder, and a Board of Aldermen, which included seven members: one from each of the four wards of the city and three elected at large.  Of course, this was when the city population was only 18,091! (I cannot imagine!)

As Charlotte began to grow, the first suburbs were formed along the streetcar lines that extended out from the city.   These suburbs, expanding to the south and east of the city, included Dilworth, Elizabeth, Myers Park (formerly known as Myers ParkEastover) and Plaza Midwood.  Latta Park was known as the “pleasure resort” and was at the southern end of the street car line. Latta Park sat just outside the city limits and was known as Dilworth, our first REAL suburb!  Historic Dilworth, with its colorful park, boulevards, expansive mansions and inviting bungalow was Charlotte’s earliest “suburban” development.  Built in 1891 by entrepreneur and streetcar owner, Edward Dilworth Latta, his home on East Boulevard, was the showplace of turn-of-the-century Charlotte. Until Latta’s departure from Charlotte in May of 1923, he played a pivotal role in the transformation of the Queen City.

Latta helped expand the city from a modest commercial center of 7,094 inhabitants in 1880, to an industrial and financial metropolis of Piedmont, NC in 1920, boasting a population of 46,338. (Today, the Queen City‘s population is a hefty 731,424, with over 2.5 million in the Charlotte Metro region and is the 17th largest city in the United States)!

Dilworth, One of Charlotte's Original Streetcar CommunitiesHistoric Dilworth boasted not only fine residences, but also a race track, ball park, pavilion, lake and an industrial complex which included textile mills and a foundry.  Still today, the Nationally Registered historical neighborhood retains its residential charm while embracing lively, adaptive reuse for commerce, galleries, restaurants and entertainment.

Today, Dilworth envelopes you in tree-lined streets which front beautiful, architecturally designed homes with wrap-around porches as well as quaint little shops and restaurants.  Local merchants offer personal attention as well as an ambiance that is Dilworth’s trademark.  It is now hard to believe that anyone everconsidered Dilworth as a ‘suburb!’  Come take a tour and see why Dilworth is the choice among many Uptown young professionals and families who love the ’neighborhood’ feel of Dilworth.  Architecture and streetscapes tell the story of Historic Dilworth—and moreover, its recent revival with renovation and new construction have given it yet, another, reason to call Dilworth, Charlotte NC home.
