Overview
More
The Buford Pusser Home and Museum stands as a moment in time, as if waiting for Sheriff Buford Pusser to return home from another shift serving the public. The modest brick ranch home contains the original furnishings, photos, cars, guns and memorabilia of the Pusser family. Buford Pusser was the subject of several major motion pictures. The "Walking Tall" movies tell about his life and tragic death.

Never heard of Adamsville? Here is a hint. There have been several books, movies, and a TV series inspired by the life of a McNairy County sheriff who lived in Adamsville. If you said Bufford Pusser of the Walking Tall sagas, you are a winner....More

With family in law enforcement, and having seen the Walking Tall movie in the 70’s, it was interesting to visit this museum. Nice little movie at the beginning which gives his history, if you’re not familiar with the story. His home is preserved with original...More
