In 1843 church services were moved to the Moline House Hotel built by Joel Wells' son, Huntington Wells. (The hotel is where the current Moline Water Works and Stoney Creek Inn are located.)

    In the spring of 1843, Sears, Spencer, White and three other local business men, Huntington Wells, Charles Atkinson, and Joel Wells met in Mr. Sears barn with a surveyor named P. H. Ogilvie and accepted a plat drawn by Mr. Ogilvie. They named the town "Moulin", (Moline) the french word for mill, but afterward changed the spelling to Moline.
