Plans have been underway since 1964 to convert the hotel built by Admiral Nimitz' grandfather in Fredericksburg,
Texas, into a major naval museum. The building, constructed in the shape of a ship in 1852, was the scene of many a
boyhood adventure for the future Fleet Admiral.
A board of Fredericksburg's leading businessmen is active in the restoration of the hotel to its original appearance.
When complete, the museum will contain educational displays dedicated to the honor of the members of the United
States Armed Forces, but centered around Fleet Admiral Nimitz. As Secretary of the Navy Paul H. Nitze has said:
"Nothing could be more appropriate than this museum that commemorates a great American and superb naval leader
of integrity, courage, judgement, high and unselfish purpose in peace and war."
