Addy is an unincorporated community and census-designated place in Stevens County, Washington, United States.

Addy was first settled in 1851 by Magnus Flett, a Hudson's Bay Company (HBC) employee, after he retired to the Addy area. Thomas Stensgar retired from the Hudson's Bay Company in 1852 and obtained the first homestead in the area in 1867. Addy was originally a Swiss dairy community. Addy was named in 1890 by E. S. Dudrey, storekeeper and the town's first postmaster, for his wife Adeline, nicknamed Addy. Addy became the stop between Chewelah and Colville on the Spokane Falls and Northern Railroad at the end of March 1892. Addy was platted by G. Fatzer in 1893.
