Nimitz Hill is a hill in the U.S. territory of Guam. It is the home of the United States Navy Commander Naval Forces Marianas in Asan on the south half of the island of Guam. It overlooks Agana Bay on its western edge. Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet Chester W. Nimitz based his headquarters here in January 1945.
The Joint Typhoon Warning Center was established at Nimitz Hill in 1959, but Typhoon Karen destroyed the center in 1962. After being rebuilt in 1965, it remained until January 1, 1999 when the center was moved to Pearl Harbor following the Base Realignment and Closure legislation of 1995. Nimitz Hill is also home to former United States Naval family housing.
