Dilworth was Charlotte’s first streetcar suburb and was established by Edward Dilworth Latta in the 1890s on 250 acres (1 km²) southwest of the original city limits.
Dilworth was born out of the powerful impact that the newly minted streetcar had on Charlotte’s original four ward neighborhood. The first streetcars were horse-drawn and later mule-drawn. These precursor streetcars and walking were Charlottean’s primary mode of transportation which kept development close to Trade and Tryon Streets, Charlotte’s urban core.
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 serves as the main thoroughfare through the neighborhood. East Boulevard is lined with restaurants, offices and shops, many located in renovated homes.
Much of the neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Dilworth Historic District.
Dilworth is a large walking neighborhood, and is not more than a ten minute drive to the center of Uptown Charlotte.
Homes in Dilworth are quite expensive, based on price per square foot, but are some of the most solid real estate investments in the Charlotte metro area.
Average homes in Dilworth are 4 bedrooms- $1,000,000
Range of homes are from $450k-$ 1.6 million. Homes are increasing at a about 10% year
