Welcome to Hardin County's Official Website! We invite you to discover exciting new events, attractions and more.


Drawn by the mighty Ohio River and the lush forests along her shore, early Europeans settled in what is now known as Hardin County during the late 1700’s. Today, two hundred years later, the quiet hills and scenic river towns beckon visitors for a different kind of vacation. Little changed from the early years, this corner of Illinois offers a pleasant diversion for travelers seeking the road less traveled. A place where North meets South…. peacefully. Hardin County may truly represent Illinois’ first and final frontier.


Hardin County has been awarded two Governor's Home Town Awards.  One for this  website, and one recognizing volunteerism for our "Keep Hardin County Beautiful" anti-litter campaign.
