Stumpy Point is located along the bay in North Carolina. It is an unincorporated community that is part of Dare County. It sits at the intersection of Bayview Drive and U.S. Route 264. The community is surrounded by the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge. This small town is actually mentioned in the book Ender's Game, written by Orson Scott Card. In this book, the town was razed in the future in order to make room for a space port which was named after it. Today, there is a chapel and a seafood shop in the community in addition to the houses.
