Before it was renamed after President Herbert Hoover, what was the original name of the Hoover Dam?

Answer:

Boulder Dam

Surveyors originally recommended the dam be constructed at Boulder Canyon, leading the dam to be called the Boulder Dam. Although Black Canyon was later deemed a better location for the new structure, it continued to be referred to as the Boulder Dam. So how did it come to be called Hoover Dam? In September 1930, construction began on a railroad line that would terminate at the dam site. During the groundbreaking ceremony for the railroad line, it was announced that the new dam would be named for the then current president, Herbert Hoover.
