Survey number HABS HI-355-A
Building/structure dates: 1941 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1952 subsequent work
National Register Number: 66000940
Significance: This housing type is significant as the residence of the principal flag officer of the Navy in Hawaii from 1941 to the present, and as an example of Hawaiian residential architecture during the 1940s, in a grouping of related types. The design accommodated prefabricated components and assembly line building techniques, reflecting the need for rapid construction in this period of build-up to World War II. This house represents the later work of one of Hawaii's master architects, C. W. Dickey. The house responds well to Hawaii's temperate environment, although its design was also influenced by the factors mentioned above. The first resident of the house was Admiral Husband E. Kimmel, Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet (CINCPACFLT). He was residing here during the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, whom the house was named for, officially resided here from December 25, 1941 to November 1945.
