The county was formed in 1784 from Cumberland County. It was named for Alfred Moore, an officer in the American Revolutionary War and associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

In 1907 parts of Moore County and Chatham County were combined to form Lee County.

Moore County has many golf resorts in the Southern Pines/Pinehurst area, and has played host to the 1996 and 2001 Women’s U.S. Opens as well as the 1999 and 2005 Men’s U.S. Opens. The Women’s Open returned to Southern Pines in 2007.

As a result of the area’s rare combination of prestige and isolation, many celebrities escape to this area from time to time. Among those who frequent or have private homes in the area are Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, and Sean Connery. Past residents of the area include Annie Oakley, Adlai Stevenson,[citation needed] Harvey Firestone, and John D. Rockefeller.

John Edwards, Charles Brady, Shannon Moore, Jeff Hardy and Matt Hardy were also raised here.

The county is divided into ten townships, which are both numbered and named: 1 (Carthage), 2 (Bensalem), 3 (Sheffields), 4 (Ritter), 5 (Deep River), 6 (Greenwood), 7 (McNeill), 8 (Sandhill), 9 (Mineral Springs), and 10 (Little River).

The county seat of Moore County is Carthage. Source Wikipedia
