Welcome to Carthage, North Carolina

Carthage, the county seat for Moore County, was incorporated in 1796. The name was changed to Fagansville in 1806 in honor of Richardson Fagin for letting the county seat be moved from his house to another tract of land he donated to the county. The name was changed back to Carthage in 1818. The exact reason is unknown, but we've been called Carthage ever since.

#RecycleMoore

To Recycle Moore, We Have to Recycle Right.

Moore County and Local Municipalities, like the Town of Carthage, have joined together to promote a single, simple, county-wide set of recycling guidelines. The #RecycleMoore, #RecycleRight campaign aims to educate local residents on what’s actually recyclable — and what’s contaminating a potentially valuable haul.  Go to the Moore County Solid Waste website to find important information about solid waste and recycling in Moore County. 

Carthage residents, there is a large recycling container at the back of the Carthage Town Hall parking lot to assist in the effort to #RecycleMoore. Please remember these important recycling standards before bringing your recyclables to the Town Hall container.
