A Brief History...

Dam Roast House & the Browder Bookstore was once known as Browder's Café.  The cafe was built in 1931 and was the town's first and only restaurant.  Owner Ida Browder was Boulder City's first business woman and was heavily involved in the community.   

Ida Browder along with Elwood Mead (yes, as in Lake Mead) joined forces and persuaded the Library of Congress to loan 3,000 books that would supply Boulder City's first library.  

The Browder Bookstore is named in her honor.
