Notes
Survey number HABS NV-35-I
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N582).
Building/structure dates: 1949 initial construction
Significance: Building 900, 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. However, it was constructed after the period of significance, 1931-1945, established for the Boulder City Historic District, and its function as a storage facility is not considered a contributing factor to the overall significance of the Research Facility. Therefore, the building is not considered 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."
