OUR

HOME

We are located on the 1st floor of the historic Boulder Dam Hotel.  Built in 1933 to accommodate visitors to the Hoover Dam construction project, the  building is one of the oldest in Nevada still operating in its original capacity.  The masonry; the gum wood paneling, fireplace, and chandeliers in the lobby; and the windows throughout the building are original.  We offer 21 guest rooms that blend the classic style of the era with the amenities modern travelers expect. The hotel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 

OUR

TOWN

WALK BC, a free, self-guided audio walking tour takes you on a one mile loop through Boulder City's Historic District -- beginning and ending at the Boulder Dam Hotel.  Learn the story of Alabam, the Toilet Paper Man (his sculpture is pictured left), discover the intentions of the men who designed and photographed the dam, tour the neighborhoods built to house the Hoover Dam workforce, and gaze over Lake Mead from the Boulder City overlook.  This tour, coupled with a visit to our museum, provides a thorough look at the men and women who built Hoover Dam and settled Boulder City.
