Waggy was an unincorporated community on the border of Braxton County and Nicholas County, West Virginia, located just west of the Webster County line on the road from Bays to Erbacon and a logging railroad from Ramp Run. It was also known as Rose Hill.

The community was named after Henry Waggy, a businessperson in the lumber industry.[2]
