The Home of Buford Pusser - Adamsville, TN

The Home of Buford Pusser - Adamsville, TN

Buford Pusser is the small town sheriff who became legendary because of the film "Walking Tall." Pusser returned to McNairy County to find things weren't like they used to be, then successfully ran for Sheriff to clean up the corruption. After a couple of terms as sheriff, he became the Adamsville constable. Then in 1974, he died in a one car crash. His home has since been turned into a museum and there's a second museum inside the bottom floor of the McNairy County Courthouse in Selmer.

Today, the home he lived in is preserved as a museum.
