Dilworth Charlotte NC Homes for Sale

Myers Park

Dilworth is a neighborhood of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, United States. The neighborhood 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. 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.

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 Charlotteans’ primary mode of transportation which kept development close to Trade and Tryon Streets, Charlotte’s urban core. The first electric streetcar, Latta’s Charlotte Street Railway Company, began operation May 18, 1891, just two days before Dilworth was opened. The original streetcar was replaced just five short years later by 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”. Trolleys remained critical to Charlotte’s development until car No. 85, the last to run, ceased operations in March 1938. This car was used for many purposes over the years and was about to be scrapped when it was located by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission and meticulously restored as part of a project to bring Trolleys back to Charlotte. Since 1996, Car No. 85 once again proudly shuttles passengers from Southend, a neighborhood to adjacent to Dilworth, to Charlotte’s urban center.

History

The city of Charlotte dates back to 1768 when it was founded and named for Queen Charlotte of England. The largely rural farming community became the site of the first yet short-lived gold rush in the nation in 1799, and after the Civil War, it became one of the biggest producers of textiles in the world. By the late 1900s, Charlotte was well on its way to becoming the country’s second-largest financial center behind only New York City.

Dilworth came about in the 1890s when a man named Edward Dilworth Latta designated 250 acres to become the first planned streetcar suburb in Charlotte. He originally called it the Eighth Ward because its grid pattern closely resembled that of the original four wards in the city. In the years that followed, the streetcar and charming homes attracted new residents and the neighborhood continued to grow. Today, it takes up around 400 acres.
