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.
