County Historical Photos & Information
Connie Mesch, in the Hardin County Assessor's Office, has requested that the public contact her with historical photos or articles related to Hardin County. She is putting together a historical county scrapbook. Connie is especially interested in information from golden ages of the smaller towns and settlements in the county, such as Gifford, Garden City, Eagle City, Robertson, Buckeye, Abbot's, Owasa, and Secor. If you have information that you think might fit into the project, please contact Connie at 641-939-8101 or cmesch@hardincountyia.gov.
