The Boulder City/Hoover Dam Museum tells the story of the men and women who braved the desolation of the southern Nevada desert to build Hoover Dam and settle Boulder City.  Their's is a story of American ambition, vision and grit.  Built during the Great Depression and as the Dust Bowl ravaged the American heartland, the engineering and construction marvel that is Hoover Dam also served as a beacon of hope -- signaling a brighter future.

On June 6, 1933, the first bucket of concrete was swung in, 800 feet above the canyon floor, then plummeted to within a few feet of the ground. Workers tripped the safety latches, and 16 tons of wet concrete slid onto the bedrock. The pour continued day and night, seven days a week, for nearly two years.
