After the Dam

The building of Hoover Dam helped to build a city in the desert. But when the construction was over, community leaders had to find a way to keep the economy going. We hear from R. Guild Gray and Jim Cashman, Jr. In the years after the dam, and before casinos took over, the Helldorado celebration was created as a rallying point for the community - a celebration to be revived this year for the Centennial.
