Comment | More

A project to paint and repair exterior surfaces at The Admiral Nimitz Museum—a part of the National Museum of the Pacific War—in Fredricksburg, TX, is up for bid.

The owner, the Texas Historical Commission, has invited contractors interested in the work to submit bids on the project by July 30.

The Admiral Nimitz Museum hosts an exhibit dedicated to the career of Chester W. Nimitz, a U.S. naval commander of the Pacific during World War II.

A mandatory pre-proposal conference was held on July 10.

Project Details

Coatings work on the exterior surfaces of the 158-year-old limestone structure includes pressure washing the metal roof and coating rusted areas with a rust inhibitor. A roofing membrane will then be spray-applied, with 24 hours in between the application of each new coat. In addition to the roof, rust will also be removed from the gable vents, which will then be primed and finished with an acrylic, corrosion-resistant metal coating.

The project also includes priming and painting stucco with two coats of elastomeric paint to be matched with the existing color. The pipe guardrail, wood siding, wood trim, and any wood that has not previously received a coat of paint will also be coated to match the existing palette.

Outside of the coatings work, the project will include the installation of new fiberglass doors. The majority of work is expected to take place while using a scaffold, according to project details.

Museum History

The building which currently houses the Admiral Nimitz Museum was originally used as a hotel. The steamboat-inspired superstructure was owned and operated by Chester W. Nimitz’s grandfather throughout the latter half of the 19th Century. In the hotel’s heyday, it played host to historical figures such as Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant.

The structure was once a hotel hosting figures such as Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant.

In the 1960s, it was closed and reopened as an exhibit dedicated to the career of Chester W. Nimitz, U.S. naval commander of the Pacific during World War II.

The museum is currently operated by the Admiral Nimitz Foundation and is a part of the National Museum of the Pacific War. The National Museum of the Pacific War is the only museum in the country that focuses solely on sharing the history of the Pacific and Asiatic Theaters during World War II, according to the museum’s website.
