Island Road History | Wacky Nut Way

Street of the Week: Wacky Nut Way

Location: A residential street running east off Rockaway Bluff Road

History: When submitting the required three suggestions for his new street, Jared Vogt added his daughter’s idea of “Wacky Nut,” never thinking it be used. But the county opted for the wackiest option. Vogt decided to keep the name, silly as it may be.
