Towns & Cities:

Harding County is in northeastern New Mexico. This is big horse and cattle ranching country: lots of huge, wide open spaces, not so much grass and hardly any people. The population before Dust Bowl days was significantly larger.

Named in honor of President Warren G. Harding, Harding County was formed in 1921 and contains 2,125 square miles of land and 1 square mile of water. The county seat is Mosquero.
