Why Nummy? In 1685, as the Europeans moved into the lands along 5 mile island, King Nummy who was the last Leni-Lenape Indian Chief with a non-violent approach, moved his tribe West but remained in what is today Rio Grande in order to care for his ill sister and her children.
Upon his death he was said to be buried among his fallen people but became a mystery and was highly debated from lack of evidence. However, it is known that he lived, died and was buried here on the island and specifically on Nummy Island in what is now North Wildwood.
Fast foreward to the Late 1920's during the times of prohibition where rum runners were smuggling illegal liquor into Cape May County and especially Wildwood. There arose a tale that the Ghost of King Nummy was floating around the island at night. Later the Coast Guard discovered a phosphorous coated bed sheet among the trees which was believed to be the works of rum runners in order to scare off anyone from visiting the island and discovering the smuggled liquor. #ENJOYTHEJOURNEY #FREAKISHLYDELICIOUS
