Moodiesburn (or Mudiesburn) was formerly part of the parish of Cadder. The name is probably from the common Scottish surname Moody. The village was developed in the 20th century with employment in coal mining and around psychiatric institution Stoneyetts Hospital.

Auchengeich mining disaster

47 men lost their lives in a coal mine near Moodiesburn in September 1959. A faulty fan purifying the air in the colliery went on fire due to an electrical fault. The accident widowed 41 women and left 76 children without fathers. Norman Buchan wrote a song about the disaster.

Aftermath and economic decline
