Marvels of Engineering – Hoover Dam

A 505-ft.-by-255.-ft. American flag hangs from the downstream face of Hoover Dam, near Boulder City, Nev. Built between 1931 and 1936, the dam today attracts roughly a million tourists every year.

Hoover Dam is located approximately 30 miles southeast of Las Vegas, on the Nevada-Arizona border.
