Moore County was formed in 1784 from Cumberland County. It is in the south central section of the State and is bounded by Cumberland, Harnett, Hoke, Scotland, Richmond, Montgomery, Randolph, Chatham and Lee counties.

The act establishing Moore County also provided for the erection of the public buildings. An act was passed in 1795 which stated that the location of the courthouse was inconvenient; it named commissioners to purchase land near the center of the county and erect a new courthouse. In 1796 an act was passed establishing Carthage on land where the courthouse was to stand. In 1803 an act was passed naming commissioners to lay out a town and build a courthouse as directed in the 1796 act. In 1806 Carthage was changed to Fagansville. In 1818, Fagansville was changed back to Carthage.

Moore County was named in honor of Captain Alfred Moore of Brunswick. a soldier of the Revolution and afterwards a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.
