The Dilworth neighborhood is as vibrant today as the original vision of the founder. Edward Dilworth Latta had contracted with the Olmstead Brothers, the nation's pre-eminent landscape designers from the northeast, to expand the Dilworth neighborhood with curved roads and dramatic landscaping. These plans would drive much of Charlotte's future character and in 1987; Dilworth was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Within two decades of Latta’s original concept and suburban development, the community added churches, businesses and schools to accommodate the growing population as historic Dilworthhad become a neighborhood of distinguished character with a mix of mansions, mill houses and middle-class homes.
