Hardman is an incorporated March 2, 1904 historic community in Morrow County, Oregon, United States on Oregon Route 207 north of Rock Creek. It is considered a ghost town.
The first settlers in the area were John F. Royse and his brother. Royse started a school in 1879 at a place called Dairyville (incorporated originally as the Umatilla County "Dairy" Precinct May 7, 1883 Book "E" page 750, which locals referred to as "Rawdog". At the same time, David N. Hardman, who arrived in the county in 1878, started a settlement a mile to the southeast. A post office named Hardman was established there in 1881 with Hardman as postmaster. A mile to the northwest of Dairyville was the community of Adamsville, known to the locals as "Yallerdog". In 1882, the Hardman post office was moved to Dairyville but retained the Hardman name. Adamsville post office was established in 1884 and closed in 1885, and thereafter, all activity centered on what is now Hardman, where the post office ran intermittently until 1968. Locals called the place "Dogtown" after its two predecessors.
