This one-story, wood-frame dwelling is a rare surviving example of a worker's house erected by the Babcock and Wilcox Company, which built the steel penstocks for Hoover Dam as subcontractors. The L-shaped dwelling has a hipped roof stretching forward to cover an enclosed porch. Windows set in pairs pierce the clapboard-sided walls. This house and eleven identical ones stood at the center of Boulder City. In 1987 the buildings were auctioned and moved to make way for the construction of a new post office. At that time this house was donated to the Clark County Heritage Museum.
