The Hardin County Historical Society (HCHS) promotes the preservation of the county's rich history through various projects and programs, including the publication of the Hardin County Historian.

Membership in the Hardin County Historical Society entitles the member to the current year's issues of the Hardin County Historian (ISSN 8755-6073). The journal is printed twice a year. Membership also entitles one to vote on HCHS affairs and hold office.

The Historian emphasizes unpublished, primary source material of Hardin County historical or genealogical content. Manuscripts submitted for publication are judged for factual accuracy, style, clarity of thought, sources used and for appeal to members. Full documentation should be submitted where possible. Neither the Hardin County Historical Society or the Historian Staff can assume responsibility for errors on the part of the contributors. Corrections when known will be printed in subsequent issues of the Historian.

The Hardin County Historical Society will publish material that touches on Hardin County, Tennessee. Material from other counties and areas will be published only if there is a connection to Hardin County within the article or contains genealogical information pertinent to any family that lives or lived in the county.

Queries are limited only by space availability. There is no limit to the number of words used and there is no charge for queries from either members or non-members.

The Hardin County Historical Society supports the Hardin County Library's Tennessee Room by donating copies of books and other materials to the library. Donations of historical and genealogical books are encouraged. These donations are tax deductible.

The Historical Society does not exchange publications or periodicals.

The society will do limited genealogical research for individuals. Please contact Robert Grimes (rdhgrimes@yahoo.com). He will try to answer questions of a genealogical or historical nature as time permits.
