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. « less

We arrived in Adamsville in the early evening after touring the Shiloh battlefield. We were dining in the "Sawmeal Restaurant and Steakhouse" The meal was good and the waitress and one of the patrons sitting directly behind me were full of information. We were asking about the Buford Pusser House and Museum and were given several stories which added to... More

I grew up seeing the movies on TV and had wanted to visit the sites where these events took place. When I discovered that Buford Pusser's home had been turned into a museum, it was a must see for me. We planned a trip to Pigeon Forge and I decided to leave a day early and drive to the other... More

Finally got to go to Adamsville Tennessee to the home and museum of Buffer Pusser. The rate was only $5.00 and a guided tour of the home he last lived in. Each home had newspaper clipping, photos, and other memorabilia of the live of the man and his family and friends. I always loved the movie 'Walking Tall' with Joe... More

Take a few minutes and stop at this unique museum if you're in the area. It's not the most life-changing thing you'll ever do in your life but it is entertaining. It really gives you an idea about the sheriff made famous by the movie. It won't take long to go through.

Our trip from 16 hours away was planned around the 25th annual Buford Pusser Festival. The mueseum staff was excellent. Julia stayed an hour past her normal scheduled time the day we arrived to allow us to go thru the museum. The staff also helped us choose resturants and sights to visit during our trip. The "artifacts" on display are... More

We were the only people on the tour and as soon as you walk in you are taken back to the 70s The founders of the museum took great lengths to provide you with as much mementos and information that...

The Buford Pusser museum captures a moment in time providing a snapshot of life of the south in the 70's. Inside the museum are original furnishings and mementos from Buford and his family. Admission is $7.00 (credit cards accepted) and once in you view a eight minute video of Buford and his life. Photos ok, no video. The home is... More
