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.

My husband and I grew up watching the Walking Tall movies. I actually got to meet Buford when I was a young child and actually had my picture took with him. So I, as well as my husband, were so excited to finally be able to tour his museum. There is lots of pictures, newspaper clippings and memorabilia. The issue... More

The Pusser home/museum is worth a visit. It starts with a video, in the living room, that details the life of Sheriff Pusser. After the video, you are given a tour of the home, which is just as he left it. His clothes are hanging in the closet. His shotgun shells are in his bedroom. The furniture in the home... More

This was my husband idea and I really thought he was a little crazy but once there I really enjoyed it. Turned out it was Bufford Pusser festival weekend so it was really busy and his daughter was there. If you are a fan of the movies or a fan of Bufford then you must go see this!!! I was... More

My parents first told me about the Walking Tall movies when I was about 10 years old. We've always revered Sheriff Pusser as one of the greats in law enforcement and, yes, in his own unique way - one man social reform. Legends always have a way of becoming a fantasy in one's mind, and builds to heroic extremes. This... More

Must stop if your in the area. His home is there museum and it's well kept. Well worth the stop to enjoy a little history. Be worth while to see the movie first.

This is good if you're familiar with the man - and the 4 movies made about his life. The original "Walking Tall" was with Joe Don Baker and Bufford Pusser was alive then and he was the official for the movie, making this the most historically accurate of the series. Sheriff Pusser was recruited to play next himself in the... More

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.

Wanted to visit Buford Pusser Home and Museum for years. So glad we made the trip. So Interesting to see his home and all the memorabilia here. His clothes, guns, cars, it was all great to see. 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.
