Hollybush is a Knott county community about 10 miles east of Hindman along Hollybush Creek just northwest of Pippa Passes. The area was probably settled during the late nineteenth century and a community known as Head of Hollybush had a post office at various locations up from the mouth on Caney Creek called Sylvester from 1900 to 1904. A Hollybush post office operated at several locations at or near the mouth from 1901 until 1996.
