Significance: Building 800, 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. Although the building falls within the fifty year age criterion and has been a contributing element of the Bureau of Mines Research Facility, alterations to the exterior (e.g., siding, window and door openings, new entries, raised foundation) and interior have changed its original appearance, and thus, its integrity. It is considered as non-contributing 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."
