Dwarf is a Perry county community on Troublesome Creek about eight miles northeast of Hazard. A community called Tunnel Mill was established, perhaps before 1800, named for the tunnel that was dug to carry water from Troublesome Creek to the mill. The Dwarf name is said to be for an early settler who was very short.
The Tunnel Mill post office operated from 1878 to 1881. The Dwarf post office opened in 1883.
