The community was named for the distant city of Moscow, Russia, after postal authorities refused to accept the townspeople's first choice, there being another post office in the state with a similar name Greensboro, after the founder David Green.
Moscow was a flourishing town at one time with saloons, hotels and mule-drawn street cars.
Moscow is served by Corrigan-Camden Independent School District.
