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.

We are on a mission.

office-doorThe Mission of the Buford Pusser Home and Museum is to preserve the integrity of the heritage passed down by Sheriff Pusser and his family.  The house was donated to the City of Adamsville by Sheriff Pusser's daughter, Dwana, with the understanding the house would stand as a monument to her father's great history in cleaning up this part of Tennessee, and preserving what life was like for their family.

 

Social Conscience is a key factor.

photosWe will always be grateful for the sacrifices Sheriff Pusser and his family made to McNairy County.  Therefore we will maintain this Law Enforcement museum to remind us how much they sacrified for the better of all of us.

 

The Secret to our success.

keysOur operation is run on the donations, gift purchases and tour sales.  This helps us maintain the home, and continue to staff the Museum.  Those in law enforcement will tell you there are few of these types of places to visit, and we in McNairy County are proud of this legacy.

The Man

This was the man – BUFORD PUSSER – the man who became the target of many assassination attempts – one of which took the life of his wife and left him emotionally and physically scarred.
