PARADISE, Calif. - The Gold Nugget Museum in Paradise is making a comeback, thanks to more than $200,000 in grant funding from the North Valley Community Foundation.

Board members say they are moving forward with restoration post-Camp Fire, but it will be a long process to bring back the museum.

They are still working to clear the property of dead trees and debris leftover from the fire.

"We're spread a little bit thin in some respects but we're looking at the future as wide open and this property is key to us and the community," said one museum member. "It's the first priority: we have to restore the property where I'm standing."

The interim museum is across the street and can safely hold about 1,200 artifacts and treasures that were salvaged after the fire.

Construction should start by next spring.
