Welcome to the Town of Carthage website.
Carthage, the county seat for Moore County, was incorporated in 1776. 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. Read more about our history, Click Here.
