Mongo was originally called Mongoquinong, and under the latter name was laid out in 1840. Mongoquinong was later shortened to Mongo. Although An Illustrated Historical Atlas of LaGrange County, Indiana (1874) translates the native name as "Big Squaw Village", it is thought to be a corruption of the Miami-Illinois maankwahkionka, meaning "In the Loon Land".
The John O'Ferrell Store was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
