Nancy Jones, wife of the late George Jones, announced Monday she will soon unveil plans to open the George Jones Museum.

The museum and event center will be located at 128 and 130 North Second Avenue, formerly known as Graham Central Station.

It will be a four-story, 44,000 square-foot center that will include a gift shop, restaurant, event space and music venue.

“We are overjoyed to share George’s legacy and memory with the Nashville community,” said Nancy Jones. “We hope that this will draw George’s friends and fans worldwide to our great city.”

Designs for the George Jones Museum are underway. The plans will be revealed some time in the near future.

Jones died last April after a year of ill health.
