In Another Time > Wildwoods’ comeback was not to last

The towns of the Wildwoods were still in their infancy when America entered World War I in 1916. Cape May to the south and Long Branch to the north had set the seashore tourism standards long before the idea ever came to the Wildwood developers and promoters.

Still, there were optimistic signs in the Wildwoods during that period leading to the outbreak of the world war that began in 1914 and was touted as “the war to end all wars.” Wildwood and Holly Beach had merged into one community in 1912, a move believed then to enhance the tourism strength of the island. Anglesea became North Wildwood in 1906, and Wildwood Crest joined the others as a borough in 1910.

From his early days Joshua Stites Shivers yearned for the sea. He didn’t have very far to become a boat captain.

Once he came of age, the son of Cornelia Buck and Edward Marmaduke Shivers gravitated from the mainland of Middle Township, where he was born on Jan. 15, 1876, to a seaside village called Anglesea, which had earned a reputation for being a profitable place for launching fishing expeditions. By the time Shivers got there, Anglesea was a full-fledged borough, having been separated from Middle Township on June 3, 1885, and it was later to be renamed the borough of North Wildwood on May 16, 1906.
