The new Jimmy Dean Museum is under construction in Plainview.
The groundbreaking was held a month ago to commemorate the start of the project.
The museum will be located on the campus of Wayland Baptist University.
It will house memorabilia from Dean's life and tell the story of his beginnings in Plainview and how he worked to become a successful entertainer and businessman.
"I know anyone will enjoy going through the museum and seeing Jimmy's memorabilia and learning more about his life."
"It's a great story to tell, but it's a great inspiration for our young people as well."
The museum is scheduled to be completed in August of next year.
