Hoover Dam

This concrete dam, located at Black Canyon, borders the states of Nevada and Arizona. Constructed between 1931 and 1936, or during the Great Depression, the dam was dedicated on September 30, 1935. The site features the largest reservoir, in terms of water capacity, in the US. Measuring 1,244 feet across the Black Canyon, the dam rises 726 feet from the banks of the Colorado River.

When taking a Hoover Dam and Lake Mead tour, you get the chance to see one of the country’s seven wonders in modern civil engineering design. A picture simply cannot depict the elaborateness of the dam. Visitors take in the surrounding views from the O’Callaghan-Tillman Memorial Bridge.
