BOUNTIFUL, Utah (AP) -- The push for a new regional museum in Davis County is on.

The City of Bountiful has already donated land near its City Hall to accommodate a museum. Now supporters are looking to raise $2 million to build and furnish it.

Bountiful has agreed to match $750,000 in building costs. The Legislature kicked in $145,000 and donors have put up about $130,000. That leaves a gap of $475,000 before work could begin.

Supporters say the South Davis Museum of History and Archives would help tell and preserve the stories of Bountiful, Centerville, West Bountiful, Woods Cross and North Salt Lake.

According to the proposal, the museum would be about 10,000 to 12,000 square feet with a small orchard and garden.
