HARDIN COUNTY is named for John Hardin, an officer in the American Revolution who was born of humble parents in Virginia in 1753.
Hardin County was formed from old Indian Territory Apr. 1st, 1820.  Area about 440 sq. miles, but was not organized until Jan. 8th, 1833, prexions to which time it formed, for judicial purposes, a part of Logan county, and when Champaign was organized of that county.  Originally the deep woods of the county were singularly free from underbrush, so that the pioneers could see a long distance between the trees.  It is supposed that this arose, from a habit of the Indians of annually burning the underbrush to facilitate the capture of game.  Owing to the heavy timber the county settled slowly, so that as late as 1840 it had but nine inhabitants to the square mile.
