1886 -- The County Courthouse at Hardin, Texas caught fire on August 8, 1886.  Some records were destroyed including the assessment rolls of the county, surveyor's records, and the county judge's records, including the probate records. The only records that may have been saved were those that were stored in an iron safe.  After the fire, the county seat was moved from Hardin to Kountze.[4]
