Hardin County is named for John J. Hardin, a Continental Army officer during the American Revolution.

In 1786, the Hardin family settled on a large parcel of land in Washington County, Virginia (now nearby Washington County, Kentucky), where they farmed and raised stock. Hardin was killed while attempting to negotiate peace with the Shawnee at the request of President George Washington.
