Significance: The Hardin City Water Works building is significant as a physical representation of the relatively rapid growth of Hardin. Within several years of its founding in 1907 and incorporation in 1911, Hardin and its citizens were able to construct this building to house a state-of-the-art water treatment facility for the city water supply system and to house city offices and an up-to-date city fire department. Aside from subsequent additions to the water treatment portion of the building, the Hardin City Water Works has sustained few alterations.
