Moore County is a county located in the U.S. state of North Carolina. As of the 2010 census, the population was 88,247. Its county seat is Carthage and its largest town is Pinehurst. It is a border county between the Piedmont and the Atlantic Coastal Plain.

In the early years the economy was dependent on agriculture and lumber. The lumber business expanded after railroads reached the area, improving access to markets. It lies at the northern edge of the area known as the Sandhills region, and developed resorts in the late 19th century, aided by railroads.

Since the early 21st century Moore County comprises the Aberdeen-Pinehurst-Southern Pines, North Carolina Micropolitan Statistical Area. It is sometimes included in the Research Triangle and Greater Raleigh-Durham CSA.
