A tribute to a "High Scaler", this statue greets visitors at the entrance to Hoover Dam.
One of the greatest engineering achievements in human history, Hoover Dam continues to draw crowds 80 years after its creation. Hoover Dam is located in Black Canyon, just minutes outside of Las Vegas.
On April 20, 1931, construction began on the Hoover Dam, the largest of its kind at the time. Despite the remote location and harsh working conditions, it was completed on March 1, 1936 in less than five years -- two years ahead of schedule -- and well under budget.
The dam is named after America's 31st president, Herbert Hoover, who played a large role in bringing the nearby states into agreement about water allocations, settling a 25-year controversy. The dam has been called Boulder Canyon Dam as well as Boulder Dam, but Hoover Dam was reinstated as the official name by Congress in 1947.
