Hoover Dam Educational Tours

The dam was built during the Great Depression and provides flood control, water conservation, and hydroelectric power. See this National Historic Landmark and feel its magnificent power in the Black Canyon.
The dam is 726.4 feet tall and weighs more than 6.6 million tons. In 1934, the concrete structure required the work of 21,000 men to erect the dam.
In order to build the Hoover Dam, the river water needed to be diverted away from the construction site. To accomplish this, the construction companies dug four giant tunnels, two on each side. Once the dam was finished, the tunnels were plugged with concrete sending the water back on its natural path.
Hoover Dam was originally named after President Herbert Hoover. However, President Franklin D. Roosevelt took the office shortly after the naming of the dam and the Secretary of the Interior decided to change the name to "Boulder Dam." Finally, in 1947, Congress passed a bill to restore the name "Hoover Dam" once again.
