Hoover Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between the U.S. states of Arizona and Nevada. When completed in 1935, it was both the world's largest electric-power generating station and the world's largest concrete structure. This dam is named after Herbert Hoover, who played an instrumental role in its construction. Construction began in 1931 and was completed in 1935, more than two years ahead of schedule.
