Hardyville is a small unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) in Hart County, Kentucky, United States, located east of Munfordville on U.S. Route 31E.

A post office was established in the community in 1868.[2] It was named in honor of a series of popular stump speeches given at the crossroads during the 1850s by local politician James Greene Hardy, Lieutenant Governor of Kentucky from 1855–1856.
