Of particular appeal is the Nimitz Hotel built in 1852 by the Admiral's grandfather. "Locals referred to it as the Steamboat Hotel because of the ship's bow front. The hotel had its own saloon and brewery, a ballroom that doubled as a theatre, a smokehouse, and a bath-house." The hotel was restored to its original design and renamed the Admiral Nimitz Museum by an act of the Texas legislature in 1969.
