Harding County is named for U.S. President Warren G. Harding and was created from parts of Union and Mora Counties on the day of his inauguration as president on March 4, 1921.

The county is the least populous county in the state, with 665, and the 14th-smallest county by population in the U.S. Its county seat is Mosquero. The only incorporated cities in Harding County are Roy and Mosquero. The county has a total area of 2,126 square miles and is divided between a high, nearly treeless prairie to the northwest and a lower semi-desert rangeland to the southeast. The Canadian River forms the western border with Mora County. Bob Wills cut hair in a barbershop in Roy in his pre-Texas Playboys music days.
