Isaac Leggett Hart was born in New York City to Elijah Hart and Margaret Stanton Hart. Around 1850, the family moved to Chicago, where Elijah was employed as a professional firefighter and then in the Water Department of the Board of Public Works.

Isaac Hart began a long career as a printer and newspaperman at age 10, when he got a job as an office boy at the Chicago Times. He interrupted his career to serve in the 72nd Illinois Infantry during the Civil War. In 1865, he married Mary Gardner.

They lived in Iowa from 1870 to 1879, where Hart founded Eldora, Iowa's newspaper.

The Harts moved to Pipestone in 1879 and Isaac Hart quickly began publishing the town's newspaper, the Pipestone Star. He became one of the town's most important and highly respected citizens. The Hart family continued its involvement in the Pipestone Star for over 75 years.

Isaac and Mary Hart had six children: Lillian (Hart) Dibble Link, Gardner, Mable (Hart) Smith, Charles, Ralph, and Kittie (Hart) Forrest.
