The tale of Carthage is the tale of courthouses. In the early days of our history Scottish immigrants trudged their way up the Cape Fear Valley reaching the Moore County area in the mid-1780s. These settlers found the perfect location for a new town on a high hill. They established their community and named it Fagansville after an early pioneer, Richardson Fagin. Moore County’s first courthouse was built on Killetts Creek in 1785. Through the years, activities in Carthage have revolved around the courthouse and still do today.
