Lots of information and detail about the life of Sheriff Buford Pusser. This is the actual home he and his family lived in. There is also some memorabilia in Selmer at the Old Court House, which housed the county jail during his time as Sheriff.

I have another trip planned this month to Buford's home. I have been there many times! It is like stepping back in 1970's. Each time I have toured the house I have learned something new or seen new memorabilia. McNairy county people are always friendly!

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
