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.

The Pusser home is exactly like it was when he died. The Corvette is on display in the garage. Our tour guide went to school with Buford which added a bit on insight. The intro video is very informative.

Saw a short biographical film and had a wonderful tour guide in Ms. Shirley.. She couldn't have been more kind and helpful. So... More

Having seen the original movie many years ago, it was nice to see photos & read about the 'real' Buford Pusser.

I have always been very interested in the life of Buford Pusser and once my oldest son watched the trilogy on tv and started asking questions, I knew it was time to plan a road trip to Adamsville. The two ladies working that day were great. Very informative and gave us an insite into the Sheriff that we didn't know.... More

The actual home of the sheriff who the Walking Tall movies were based upon. Short film at the beginning of the tour gives some lesser known information about the sheriff. It also gives some funny stories. There is more to see in the basement, including a gift shop and his burned out car that he died in. This is a... More

Not sure what I expected, but there's not much going on. Took about 20 mins to see everything in an old run down house. Grabbed a few tacky souvenirs and I don't ever need to go back.

The Buford Pusser Home & Museum is definitely worth your time. It is filled with room after room of Pusser memorabilia. My sister and I toured the museum after completing the annual bus tour which carries you around McNairy County to see many places associated with the life and death of Buford Pusser. The tour even included lunch with Dwana,... More
