The museum will cost about $5 million to complete and will house memorabilia from Jimmy Dean's personal collection. It will depict Dean's life from its most beginnings in northeastern Plainview top his career in music, television and business.

A bronze statue of Dean will be delivered this week and will be moved to the museum entrance.
