Alan Moore, owner of Moore's Mill, and Andrew Stevens platted the small town of Moore's Hill in 1839. It consisted of the gristmill and nine lots. Moore's Hill College opened its doors as a denominational college in 1907. In 1908, Carnegie Hall was constructed by the university to serve as an academic building. It later served as an elementary and high school. It is now utilized as a museum. The college survived until 1917 when it relocated to Evansville and became Evansville University.

Moore's Hill lies near Indiana State Road 350, which connects Aurora, Indiana to Osgood Indiana and the CSX Rail Line that links Aurora Indiana to St. Louis Missouri.
