Dilworth is on Farm Road 1159 eight miles northeast of Clarksville in northeastern Red River County. The area was settled before 1900. A school was in operation there by 1907, when it had an enrollment of thirty-four. In the mid-1930s Dilworth had a church, a school, and a number of houses. Its school was closed around the time of World War II. In the early 1990s Dilworth reported a population of twenty-two and had a church, a cemetery, and a few scattered dwellings. In 2000 the community still reported a population of twenty-two.
