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.

If you know the history of Buford Pusser, this is a welcome tour. If you don't, it is worth checking out. Bufford Pusser built this home (twice) and raised his family here. The ladies who give the tour are knowledgeable and very enjoyable.

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.
