Charlotte's first streetcar suburb, was developed in the 1890s on 250 acres southwest
of the original city limits and included the Joseph Forsyth Johnson designed Latta Park.
Planned largely with a grid pattern similar to the city's original four wards, it was
initially designated the Eighth Ward. Centered on East Boulevard, today Dilworth is popular
with Charlotte's young professionals drawn to its historic turn of the century architecture
and traditional neighborhood feel.
