Martin Davis Hardin (June 21, 1780 – October 8, 1823) was a United States Senator from Kentucky.


Born along the Monongahela River in western Pennsylvania, Hardin moved with his parents to Kentucky in 1786. He pursued an academic course, and attended Transylvania Seminary in Lexington, Kentucky. He studied law, was admitted to the bar, and practiced in Richmond and Frankfort.

Hardin was a member of the Kentucky House of Representatives from 1805 to 1806, and again in 1812. He served as a major in the War of 1812, and he was the Kentucky Secretary of State from 1812 to 1816. He was appointed and subsequently elected as a Federalist to the United States Senate to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of William T. Barry, and served from November 13, 1816 to March 3, 1817. Afterwards he returned to the Kentucky State Senate, serving from 1818 to 1820, and acting as Speaker of the House from 1819 to 1820.

Martin Hardin died in Frankfort in 1823, and was interred on his farm in Franklin County, Kentucky. His remains were later reinterred in the State Cemetery in Frankfort. He was the cousin of Benjamin Hardin and father of John J. Hardin.
