As for its current name, the story goes, a large boulder, shaped like a bull’s head, was located at the dam site, and the community was referred to as Bull’s Head. After the dam was built, and the waters of Lake Mohave rose and covered the surrounding shoreline, the boulder was submerged. Postal officials then changed the name of the new community to Bullhead City.
