Elephant Butte Dam - Sierra County Centennial Video Series
This video tells the story of the Elephant Butte Dam (a National Historical Engineer Landmark with the ASCE) and how it came to be constructed in this particular location as opposed to on the U.S. / Mexico border. Life in the workers camp is described, as well as impacts the dam and its construction had on the town of Las Palomas Hot Springs (now the city of Truth or Consequences).
