History

Moscow was platted in 1816. The name may have been given to the town by French immigrants who were veterans of Napoleon's siege of Moscow. A post office called Moscow has been in operation since 1826.

On March 2, 2012, a tornado destroyed over 80% of the town and caused three deaths, as multiple tornadoes ripped through Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio.
