Jimmy Dean Museum

Funded by a donation from the Jimmy Dean Foundation and Donna Dean Stevens, the Jimmy Dean Museum chronicles the life of the late sausage mogul and country entertainer.


Raised in Plainview, Jimmy Dean pulled himself from poverty to national prominence as a television entertainer and businessman who started the Jimmy Dean sausage company. The Jimmy Dean museum opened in 2016 and tells the story of his life, including memorabilia, video, records and photos from his personal collection.

Adjacent to the Jimmy Dean Museum is the Museum of the Llano Estacado that houses the Hale County Hall of Fame that includes exhibits of other prominent citizens from Plainview and the surrounding area, as well a chronological history of the Llano Estacado.

The museum is open M-Th 8:00 - 5:00; F 8:00 - 4:00; 1:00 - 5:00 on weekends.
