Harding is an unincorporated community in Freedom Township, LaSalle County, Illinois, United States, just 12 miles (19 km) north of the county seat of Ottawa, Illinois.

Background[edit]

When surveyors started to determine the size of the area, Harding was to be around 1 square mile. However, Harding is only 1/2 of a mile in length from north to south and an even smaller 1/5 mile wide. Crooked Leg Creek runs along the southern border. Containing less than fifty houses, this small town has a population of less than 150[1] people who range from early twenty somethings to golden agers. The village has a United Methodist Church,[2] a volunteer fire fighting station, a small cemetery, and Harding Grade School.[3] A small community building, centralized in the town, is used nearly every month to host a bluegrass music show. The mail is delivered by postal carriers from the nearest post office in Earlville.
