Theodore Roosevelt Dam dedicated a century ago

March 18, 2011 is a milestone for me, Theodore Roosevelt Dam. It was on that day 100 years ago that former President Theodore Roosevelt stood on a platform on top of my roadway and said, “if there could be any monument which would appeal to any man, surely it is this.”
