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.

I was a little apprehensive at visiting this site but was glad we did. We were there on the 50th anniversary of the ambush that killed Pauline Pusser. We retraced the exact path Sheriff Buford Pusser and his wife took to a supposed disturbance call...More
