Hoover Dam is a gigantic dam located on the Nevada-Arizona border of Boulder City, about 30 miles from Las Vegas, and one of the most visited tourist attractions outside Las Vegas. The plant, which produces 4.2 billion kwh of power distributed between the states of Nevada (25%), Arizona (19%) and California (56%), was built in just 5 years – between 1931 and 1936 – and at the time was the largest dam in history and a challenge lord for engineers. Hoover Dam has been a major development for the state of Nevada and is largely responsible for accessing Las Vegas as a tourist destination.
The dam was built during the Great Depression and its original name was Boulder Dam. When it was finalized, it was to be a tribute to former US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1933-1945). Controversially, however, it was named after President Hoover, Roosevelt’s predecessor.
During its construction 112 people died. The dam produces power for public and private use in the states of Nevada (25%), Arizona (19%) and California (56%).
More than 1 million tourists visit the dam every year (consider who paid to enter the Visitor Center or did any tours) and several million more enter the complex.
The movies Superman (1978), In the Wild (2007), Transformers (2007), Earthquake: The San Andreas Fault (2015), among others have scenes shot at Hoover Dam.
