Hub is an unincorporated community in Marion County, Mississippi, United States.

South of Hub is the Lower Little Creek, a tributary of the Pearl River.

Hub was never incorporated, and had a post office from 1899 to 1954.[2]

A shortline logging railroad, constructed by Camp & Hinton Brothers in the 1880s, began in Hub and extended several miles south. The Gulf and Ship Island Railroad, a mainline railroad, was built through Hub in 1899.[3]
