Lake Powell / Glen Canyon

Page was founded in 1957 as a housing community for workers and their families during the construction of nearby Glen Canyon Dam on the Colorado River. Its 17-square-mile site was obtained in a land exchange with the Navajo Nation. The city is perched atop Manson Mesa at an elevation of 4,300 feet above sea level and 600 feet above Lake Powell.

Because of the roads and bridge built for use during the construction of the Glen Canyon Dam, Page has has become the southern gateway to the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Lake Powell, attracting more than 3 million visitors per year. In addition, Page is also home to world-famous Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend.
