Notes
Survey number HABS NV-35-A
Building/structure dates: 1941 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1945 subsequent work
Significance: Building 100, as part of the Date Street Complex, was part of the Bureau of Mines Electrometallurgical Research Facility located in Boulder City. As such, it is within the designated Boulder City Historic District. One of seven buildings considered eligible, this is one of two that are currently in use and will not be demolished. The building was included as a contributing element in the Boulder City Historic District Nomination (1983). This building was constructed in 1941 with an addition built in 1945 and alterations made through time that have not affected its architectural integrity. The 1945 footprint and roofline are unchanged, as is the wall cladding; however, the roof cladding was changed. Significance for this building includes being a part of the Bureau of Mines Electrometallurgical Laboratory during the period of 1931 to 1945, and, therefore, it is a contributing element to the District. The significance of the Boulder City Historic District is tied to the Boulder Canyon Project (Hoover Dam) and to the history of American City Planning. This was the first community constructed following the federal New Towns model, as well as the "first fully-developed experience in new town planning as promoted by the Community Planning Movement, a movement which is recognized as the force which most influenced contemporary community planning practices."
