Stab is an unincorporated community in Pulaski County, Kentucky, United States.

History[edit]

A post office called Stab was established in 1922, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1994.[2] The name Stab was chosen in part for its brevity; the first choice had been rejected as too long by postal authorities.[3]
