Dilworth Real Estate

A quaint neighborhood of Mecklenburg County, a fun fact about Dilworth was that it was Charlotte's first streetcar suburb—established by Edward Dilworth Latta in the 1890s. It’s been said, 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 and would eventually be replaced by the Charlotte Electric Railway. Streetcars or trolleys were a popular mode of transportation and made adjacent real estate extremely desirable. The Charlotte Electric Railway trolley became a billboard for the Dilworth community as it prominently displayed, "Buy a home in Dilworth for rent money.”

The streets of Dilworth feature stately, mature oak trees, sidewalks, and houses with expansive front porches. The homes are primarily bungalows, with the occasional Queen Anne, along with some larger, two-story Colonial Revivals lining Dilworth Road East and West. In 1987, much of the neighborhood was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Dilworth Historic District—encompassing 1,389 contributing buildings and one contributing structure.

East Boulevard serves as the main thoroughfare of Dilworth neighborhood—lined with restaurants, offices and shops, with many located in renovated homes. Additionally, Charlotte's largest hospital, Atrium Medical Center, is in Dilworth. This 861-bed teaching hospital is the region's only Level 1 trauma center.
