Boulder City is a city located in Clark County, Nevada.
Boulder City was originally built by the Bureau of Reclamation as housing for workers who were building Hoover Dam. Alcohol sales and all forms of gambling were prohibited in the city. The Bureau did not relinquish control of the city until 1958. The city charter, approved by the residents, prohibited gaming within the city limits. This provision still exists, making Boulder City the only location in Nevada where gaming is illegal. Alcohol sales were permitted in 1969.
