Welcome to Hardin County, Texas
Hardin County was originally part of the Spanish "Atascosito District"
and under Mexican rule became "Liberty District." In 1835, the present county was known as "Municipality of Bevil" or Bevil's District. After Texas's independence, the district was divided into Liberty, Jefferson and Jasper counties. In 1846 Tyler County was created out of the northern part of Liberty
County and in 1858 Hardin was created from that part which was originally Liberty and part of what was originally Jefferson counties.
