"The Administration Building houses the Government offices for Boulder Dam. Boulder City is laid out so that all streets radiate from this building." (postcard)

"During the Great Depression of the 1930s, those who looked uphill from the new town that fanned out below saw hope. Reclamation water projects created jobs, and delivered the water and power that the West needed for economic recovery and growth.

The Administration Building was designed and built in 1930-32. Modifications have occurred on several occasions. The second floor was added to the east and west ends in 1947. From 1989-94, the building was renovated to improve accessibility and address life safety issues. Additional modifications were made in 2004 to improve earthquake preparedness.

From 2017-18, Reclamation worked closely with the Nevada State Historic Preservation Office as the building was remodeled. The building systems were modernized to reduce energy and water use and make more efficient use of space, while maintaining the building’s historic character."
