MOORE’S HILL.
An enterprising town of about 500 inhabitants. It is situated in Dearborn county, near the Ohio & Mississippi railroad, forty miles from Cincinnati. The Moore’s Hill Male and Female College is located here, which is in a flourishing condition. Moore’s Hill is one among the few towns in this State of its size that has never supported a saloon. Such a fact is a sufficient indication of the moral and religious standing of the place, and should be a guarantee to parents who wish to avail themselves of a good place to educate their children. It has a fair representation of the different trades and professions. Large quantities of hay and produce are shipped from here annually.

Lawrenceburg – 1866 Indiana Gazetteer and Shippers’ Guide

Lawrenceburg, Dearborn County, Indiana entries from:
Cowen, M.V. B., compiler. The Indiana State Gazetteer and Shippers’ Guide for 1866-7. Lafayette, Indiana : Rosser, Spring & Cowen, 1866.
Digital Copy at HathiTrust

Lawrenceburg, capital of Dearborn county, on the Ohio river, and on the Indianapolis & Cincinnati and Ohio & Mississippi railroads, 21 miles from Cincinnati, and  90 miles from Indianapolis. This is one of the oldest towns in the State, being contemporary with Cincinnati. It is surrounded by as fine a body of land for agricultural purposes as can be found in the West, but being subject to inundation from the river, it has made very little progress in years past. However, something is now being done to advance its commercial interest and increase its population. The City Council has secured two valuable levees, almost obviating the water difficulties. Several new and extensive manufacturing enterprises are already in progress, one of these is the large furniture manufactory; another a bedstead manufactory; and a woolen mill has been erected by a joint stock company, representing a capital of $100,000, under the style of the Lawrenceburg Woolen Manufacturing Company. Trade is brisk, and all kind of legitimate enterprises prospering. Population 4,500. Express Company, Adams.
