Haddix is an unincorporated community and coal town in Breathitt County, Kentucky, United States. It is located near the confluence of Troublesome Creek and the North Fork Kentucky River.[2]

The first mines opened in this area about 1852. A post office was established in 1916, and named for early settler Samuel Haddix, a native of Virginia.[3] Its post office closed in 1994.[4]
