Enjoyed a look back at Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz life and career. Includes many family photos and artifacts of his early life, military life and later years.

Check in here first, to buy your Museum pass and learn about Admiral Nimitz's childhood. This site was a hotel in the late 1800-s and early 1900's. Great background on the area and the German settlers of the area.
