Moline, Michigan is an unincorporated community in northeastern Allegan County. Situated mostly in Dorr Township, a portion of the community extends east into Leighton Township.

The chief route through the community is US Highway 131, which forms a portion of Moline's boundary in the southwest, then runs north-south through the west part of the community. US-131 is a north-south US highway that runs from southern Indiana to Petoskey, Michigan. The stream, Red Run, forms a small portion of its border in the northwest.

Incorporated cities and villages within twenty miles of Moline include Wayland, Middleville, Caledonia, Hopkins, Wyoming, Martin, Kentwood, Grandville, Grand Rapids, and East Grand Rapids, while the unincorporated communities of Dorr, Corning, Corinth, Ross, North Dorr, Carlisle, Byron Center, Cutlerville, and Dutton are within ten miles.

The community was settled by European-Americans around 1840, and a post office was established on January 2, 1863, with Charles A. Orton as. postmaster. Early settlers included John L. Shaw, Edward P. Vining, and Alfred Chapple. When the Grand Rapids & Indiana Railroad established a depot in Moline in 1870, the community enjoyed a spurt of growth. At one time, there were two general stores on Railroad Avenue, and another around the corner. Railroad Avenue is now known as Park Street. The townsite was platted and recorded by Alfred Chapple in 1972, but Moline was never incorporated as a village.
