History & History Related Items

Hardy history:

As with many of the towns begun in the 1800’s, Hardy was also born thanks to the railroad. A few settlers lived here, but no real town existed until the railroad came through. The town was founded in 1883 and was named for James A. Hardy, Jr.. He was one of the railroad sub-contractors who saved the life of his boss.

Hardy became the county seat of the Northern District of Sharp County.. Evening Shade was the seat of the Southern District. In 1967, the two districts were combined with Ash Flat becoming the new County seat.

Many of Hardy’s downtown buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and this same area has basically retained its original look.

The area also has campgrounds, motels, bed & breakfast and cabins for those wishing to linger.

The Spring River runs near Main Street and offers many opportunities for outdoor activities. Two city parks are near the river
