Nimrod was named after the nearby ancient Nimrod Fortress, and is located near Neve Ativ and the Druze towns of Majdal Shams, Masade, and Ein Kinya. The settlement was originally established as a paramilitary Nahal outpost on 31 January 1982, with groundbreaking on that year's Israeli Independence Day. Nimrod became a civilian town in January 1999, and now houses six families. The village is centred on catering to tourists, and operates a restaurant and bungalows.
