La Moille was first settled in 1830 by Daniel Dimmick, who went on to found Dimmick, Illinois after the Blackhawk War. The village was originally named Greenfield when platted, but was soon after changed to La Moille. In 1870, an extension of the Chicago, Burlington, and Quincy Railroad began passenger and freight service between Mendota, IL and Fulton, IL.[5]

By 1877, the town was home to a hotel, several churches, more than a dozen stores, a grain elevator, doctors, and a one room schoolhouse. These businesses made up a downtown area of three blocks. The Allen School was built in 1887 to alleviate overcrowding brought on by the increasing population and consolidation of public schools.[6] A fire on May 19th, 1916 destroyed much of the northern portion of the downtown area.[7]
