    In module #10, we begin to see a decisive shift toward the Nevada we know today. Two major  developments reshaped the state. First, the decision to build a dam on the Colorado River just south of Las Vegas had far-reaching implications that no one anticipated. For one, the dam quickly  became a tourist attraction because of its scale and beauty (an arch over Fremont Street in the  1930s read “Las Vegas: Gateway to Boulder [now Hoover] Dam.”  In addition, many of the workers traveled the short distance to Las Vegas for alcohol and  entertainment (Boulder City did not allow alcohol). Today we see this as a first step in establishing  Las Vegas as a tourist destination, although far behind Reno as an entertainment center at this  point.        Second, the 1931 Nevada Legislature took the momentous step of re-legalizing gambling in the  state. While gambling was Illegal between 1910 and 1931, Nevada completely reversed course and
