Buford Pusser Home and Museum stands as a moment in time, as if waiting for the sheriff to return home from another shift serving the public. He was the subject of several motion pictures. The "Walking Tall" movies tell about his life and tragic death.
The tour includes a short video and a guided tour of the museum which was the actual home of legendary Sheriff Buford Pusser. Our newest exhibit is the wreckage of the Corvette he was driving on the night of his death.
