Dilworth is a neighborhood of Charlotte, and sits just a few miles from Uptown. The neighborhood was Charlotte’s first streetcar suburb, and it’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The area is known for its Bungalow-style homes and tree-lined streets. Residents enjoy a diverse mix of shops and restaurants along East Boulevard, the main thoroughfare.
Dilworth was established by Edward Dilworth Latta in the 1890s on 250 acres southwest of the original city limits. It included the Joseph Forsyth Johnson-designed Latta Park. Planned largely with a grid pattern similar to the city’s original four wards, Dilworth was initially designated the Eighth Ward.
The streets of Dilworth feature stately, mature oak trees, sidewalks, and houses with front porches. The homes are primarily bungalows with the occasional Queen Anne, and some larger, two-story Colonial Revivals lining Dilworth Road East and West.
East Boulevard is lined with restaurants, offices and shops, many located in renovated homes. There are friendly neighborhood bars and upscale restaurants to choose from, as well as trendy clothing boutiques. Charlotte’s largest hospital, Carolinas Medical Center, is located in Dilworth. This 861-bed teaching hospital is the region’s only Level 1 trauma center.
