History & History Related Items

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.
