Our local PBS channel is running an American Experience documentary on the building of Hoover Dam right now and it’s really interesting. I missed a little bit of the first part the other night – but caught all of the 2nd half, which is where they really show the creation of Boulder City — super neat photos and history.
If you’ve got 52 minutes to spare…you can watch it online at PBS right now by clicking here. They usually keep them up for a bit, but it will eventually go away. You can also buy the DVD online, of course – – but know that it’s also available at the Boulder City/Hoover Dam Museum inside the Boulder Dam Hotel. They’ve actually got a couple of different versions that were issued throughout the years over there. Enjoy!
