Fredericksburg: National Museum of the Pacific War

The Nimitz Hotel, operated by the Nimitz family from 1855 to 1926, was a center of Fredericksburg social life and hosted many notable travelers over the years, including Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant, at different times, of course. The hotel is now part of the National Museum of the Pacific War – a six-acre complex showcasing the sacrifice and service of the Pacific Fleet of World War II and honoring Commander Chester Nimitz, son of one of Fredericksburg’s founding families.”
