See More of Hoover Dam

The Dam contains a whopping 3.25 million cubic yards of concrete – all enough to stretch across the country.


The Hoover Dam (originally known as Boulder Dam) is an inspiring symbol of American engineering, built during America’s Great Depression as the then-largest dam construction project in the world.

Travelers have flocked here for decades to see picturesque views of Lake Mead and the Colorado River, and today, the dam receives more than 1 million annual visitors. 

Its construction was the result of a massive effort involving thousands of workers, and cost over one hundred lives.

Originally known as Boulder Dam from 1933, it was officially renamed Hoover Dam, for President Herbert Hoover, by a joint resolution of Congress in 1947.
