Dilworth has long been one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in all of Charlotte.

Founded in 1891 as Charlotte’s first streetcar suburb, Dilworth has a long history. Over a century later, fighting its way back through decay, preservation issues, and the demise of the streetcar line, Dilworth is today one of Charlotte’s premiere addresses. Chock full of historic homes, tree-lined streets, and tons of fabulous restaurants and retail shops, there’s a lot to love about Dilworth.

A few of the best features of Dilworth include…

Situated right next to Freedom Park, Charlotte’s most prestigious park, Dilworth is a great place for bikers, runners, hikers, and tennis players. Latta Park and the Midtown Greenway are also within walking distance to most of the neighborhood.

Sense of Community:

Dilworth has one of the most active neighborhood associations in all of Charlotte.
