If you live in Bountiful or have any roots there, take this little six-question quiz:
1. Who settled Bountiful and how many wives did he have?2. Which Major League pitcher is from Bountiful?
3. Which bank in 1963 caused a stir in the banking industry when it announced it would remain open until 8 p.m.?
4. Who from Bountiful became governor of Utah?
5. Who is Bountiful's most famous candymaker?
6. Who is the city's most famous ice skater?
If you don't know the answers to all of these, perhaps you should read Bountiful Centennial Quarterly (see answers in box). The magazine's first edition has rolled off the presses this month and is available at most businesses in town, said Leslie Foy, co-chairman of the Bountiful Historical Society.
Published by the society, the smartly written magazine is designed to educate residents about the community, which turns 100 years old in December 1992.
It was on Dec. 14, 1892, that Bountiful became incorporated with its current name, which is also the name of a Book of Mormon land.
Bountiful, Utah, was settled in 1847 and was first called Sessions Settlement, which is a clue for Question No. 1. Between 1847 and 1892, the community was also called North Canyon, after one of the canyons southeast of town.
The 16-page debut edition of Bountiful Centennial Quarterly features stories on famous local personalities and businesses. The stories are surrounded by advertising from 11 local businesses or associations.
At $2 per copy, the magazine was also conceived to raise money to help fund Bountiful's centennial celebration.
"The advertising pays only for the cost of printing the magazine," said Foy, who also serves as a city councilman.
Foy said people who wish to become involved in the historical society or to donate money can write him in care of Bountiful City Hall, 790 S. 100 East, Bountiful, UT 84010
