BIMSARCK, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Heritage Center is approaching its goal of raising $12 million from private donors for an expansion project.

Gov. Jack Dalrymple earlier this week announced a $600,000 donation from the nonprofit Tom and Frances Leach Foundation.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that the latest gift brings the amount of private-sector donations to $11.6 million.

The Heritage Center on the state Capitol grounds is home to the State Historical Society of North Dakota and is the state's official history museum.

The grand opening for the expanded and renovated center is scheduled for November 2014, which is the 125th anniversary of North Dakota statehood
