Hoover Dam Rose Davis gave a tour of Hoover Dam, located on the border of Nevada and Arizona, and spoke about its history. The dam was built along the Colorado River during the Great Depression and provided not only flood control, crop irrigation, and hydroelectric power for the southwestern states, but also jobs for many in the city of Las Vegas.
