Hardy, AR -- mid 1950's Picture of Hardy, AR - mid 1950's Main Street

Prior to 1880, Hardy, AR did not exist. Only a few families lived in this heavily timbered area, and not until the completion of the railroad did the boom times come. Thanks to the railroad, much was needed - a water tank to service locomotives, a station to take on and unload passengers and freight, housing for its employees, and various other services. The town of Hardy was officially founded in 1883, and was named for James A Hardy, Jr., a 25-year-old trackage subcontractor who saved his boss's life.

Founded in 1856, Ash Flat is located in the foothills of the Ozark mountain range of northern Arkansas. The original settlement of Ash Flat was located on a flat that was overgrown with ash trees, which resulted in the name, "Ash Flat". Ash Flat, (current population 667), became the county seat of Sharp County in 1967.
