Dilworth Historic District
Dilworth Historic District is located just outside of Uptown Charlotte. The neighborhood was Charlotte's first street car suburb and 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 style home 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. Charlotte’s largest hospital, Carolinas Medical Center is in Dilworth. This 861-bed teaching hospital is the region’s only Level 1 trauma center.
Much of the neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Dilworth Historic District. The district encompasses 1,389 contributing buildings and 1 contributing structure. The district was listed in 1987, with a boundary increase in 2000.
Dilworth sits along the new light rail system into Uptown Charlotte, and the popular South End district, with a wide variety of trendy local shops and resturants within walking distance.
