Boulder City Airport was dedicated on December 10, 1933. Airline service arrived on June 15, 1936 with Grand Canyon Airlines. Trans World Airlines opened a terminal at the airport on May 20, 1938; its last DC-3 left in 1949-50 and the airport may never have seen an airline after that. The terminal building was sold in 1958 to the Boulder City Elks Club.
The 1958 USGS 1:24000 topo map (the Boulder City quad, online at usgs.gov) shows the layout, three runways just southeast of US 93. The March 1959 chart says unpaved runway 3 was 6383 ft long, while 6495-ft runway 17 and 3680-ft runway 12 (both unpaved) were "not maintained". About 1964 they paved 3000 ft of runway 3. The June 1988 directory says runway 3 was 2965 ft of asphalt and runway 17 was 2880 ft dirt; the August 1990 directory shows no airport, old or new, at Boulder City.
Boulder City Airport has been replaced by Boulder City Municipal Airport.
