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.

On our trip into Adamsvile the evening before, we visited Buford's grave and highway marker where he died. The next morning we toured his home and museum. So much to see and take in, glad we had a guide. It was humbling and a real honor to pay homage to such a great American Lawman. I encourage everyone who fights... More

First I do not think that she introduced herself. Told us she would be right with us. We watched the video which was nice. There is a lot of memorabilia and articles to look at and read. The newspaper items are very yellowed and difficult to view. Our guide seemed to rush us through and stayed right with us. It... More

What a great place to visit. Even though some of his ways in today's times would seem extreme, you have to remember the outlaws and crooked people of his county killed his wife. I love this place.

First and foremost, our guide, Dottie, was wonderful and VERY informative, and a very sweet person. Now, if you have had the opportunity to see the ORIGINAL Walking Tall movie, you will enjoy the tour. Almost everything was original, they even had Buffords Lincoln Continental, and, sad, the corvette he had the accident and passed away in, completely burned. This... More

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

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
