Owner description: 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.

I was 8 miles away visiting the Shiloh NMP when I decided to come here. An older lady gave me a guided tour and answered my questions. She said she knew Buford from grade school through high school, and had even talked to him on the phone the day he died. Among other things, she said the first "Walking Tall"... More

The history of Buford Pusser fills the museum to the brim! From the first time I heard of him, years ago, I became enthralled with his tenacity for ridding crime. Very kind and helpful assistant to show us around. I enjoyed every minute we spent here. Very interesting! I would visit again! I was absorbing all I could of this... More

We 'accidentally' stumbled onto this museum. We were driving from Memphis to Shiloh National Park when we saw signs for the Buford Pusser museum. We remembered the movie 'WALKING TALL' and decided to stop. It is just a block or so off the main road; so easy and convenient to get to. The museum is the home where Sheriff Pusser... More

I was a kid, I remember watching the Walking Tall movie. Always been fascinated by it. So, on our way home from Memphis, we detoured to here. It's cool to see and it's a quick tour, make it worth your while and visit his grave and even where he died. I'm kinda into that stuff. If I had more time,... More

I went with friends and I could instantly tell who the real fans were. I know of Mr.Pusser but to some of my friends hr was obviously a Hero, They really enjoyed holding the actual "Big Stick" for sure. I like reading the fact about his story, some where quite different from the movies. The area around the museum is... More

I grew up with a father who is a big fan of the movie Walking Tall. Buford Pusser was no doubt a very interesting man! So when my husband suggested going to Adamsville (on our way to Tunica, MS) for the tour I was all in. We got there on a Friday afternoon around 3 PM. The only people in... More

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
