Platted in 1839 by Adam Moore and Andrew Stevens, it originally contained nine lots adjacent to Moore's gristmill. The community was originally known as Moores Mill, but postal authorities misspelled it Moores Hill, and the name stuck.

Many early settlers in the town were Methodist families from Delaware and the shore of Maryland. The first mercantile business was established by Samuel Herron.

Moores Hill and its citizens are the subjects of the 1941 volume Pop. 359, a book of poems self-published by Indianapolis Star columnist Carl Wilson under the pseudonym Tramp Starr.
