[Infographic] Bizarre History of the Hoover Dam

Apparently it’s not enough that it looks like some giant alien satellite; the Hoover Dam also has to have a bizarre history as well. Don’t believe us? Well, it’s true: One of America’s most impressive edifices has a pretty quirky (and sometimes downright dark) backstory. Let’s take a look.

 

Planning a visit? Good call; it’s a sight to see. Might we suggest that while you’re there, you tack on a day trip rafting down the Colorado River? You might find the Black Canyon even more impressive than the dam that controls the water moving through it. If you’d like to find out more or reserve your spot, please call (800) 455-3490 today.
