The beautiful, new playground that Adamsville is so blessed to have! "Will this affect the festival?" you ask? We must remember that our festival is only three days per year and the playground/park is used year round. For those of you that knew Sheriff Pusser, then you know how much he loved children. He would be thrilled for our little town to have such a playground! I believe that it will only enhance the festival by giving parents a cost free option to entertain the children while enjoying the music, which is what festivals are all about! It'll be fine!!!

The Buford Pusser Memorial Park has a new addition with a much improved playground! If you haven’t tried it out, please visit us soon!

Sheriff Buford Pusser Remembered

This is an old video but packed with information!

America needs heroes and America needs servants. If you've never heard of Sheriff Buford Pusser, watch this video then delve into the history of the deep south. Sheriff Pusser took on crime and corruption, head on. In his decade of public service he locked up more than 7,000 criminals!

I had the privilege of presenting a big stick to our U.S. Congressman, Mark Green, at the Chamber Banquet. He was absolutely tickled pink to receive it! I told him to “Walk Tall and carry a big stick!” He said he would come to the museum very soon. It was a great night!

Many, many thanks and God’s blessings to those that have made donations to the museum, some in Dwana’s memory. Please think of us for your end of year donations as we use those to make much needed improvements to the house and grounds.

Here’s a challenge to Nevadans! We started this map project only one year ago and the only state that’s not represented is Nevada. During the month of August, we had visitors from 30 states, including Anchorage, Alaska plus two groups from Canada. As you can see, we have visitors from all over the world!

Just a reminder - this page is about the Sheriff Buford Pusser Home & Museum. This is where you will find, first hand, the things that are going on at the museum. If you would like to post something on our page, you are more than welcomed! But please keep in mind that all non-related negativity will be removed because we are about the legend of Sheriff Pusser and the sacrifices that he and his dear family made to clean up a very corrupt area during the late '60s and early '70's Thank you to the many fans that continue to support the museum and Sheriff Pusser's Legacy! As was the Sheriff's motto..."What's right is right, what's wrong is wrong, no matter who you are!"

We’d love to have more student groups visit the museum to learn about our history!

A group of students from the Criminal Justice program at Calhoun Community College in Huntsville, AL toured the museum today. What a great bunch of kids! Extremely polite and each one showed a great interest in Sheriff Pusser's legacy

Our first Annual Buford Pusser Fan Day was officially a hit!!! The bus tour was a huge success and we will definitely be doing it more often! The cookout didn’t happen exactly the way we wanted because it had to be cooked remotely but we will make sure that we cook here next year. But the food was worth the wait! The hamburgers and hot dogs were both delicious! I’m so glad that everyone enjoyed meeting each other in person instead of always through posts. We missed Andy Kovanic, Jim Mankowski and so many more! We’ll see you next time!

GOOD NEWS!!! GOOD NEWS!!! (sorry Roscoe!) A couple of new additions for our event on Saturday. We have a SIGNED copy of Dwana's book, WALKING ON, and we will have a silent auction for it. Admission is only $5 for adults and kids are free all day Saturday. Also, BO SVENSON, that played Buford in Walking Tall II & the Final Chapter will personally call in to the bus tour for a question & answer session!!!

Oh my goodness! I can never, ever thank Kevin Mcadams and Candy, along with six of their eight children, for traveling five hours one way to help us with sticks today. We did 350 lil sticks with drilled holes to make suede cord handles (much bigger job than I had anticipated!😰) and 12 Special Sticks. These sticks are going to be used as trophies and participation awards for the Walking Tall 25/50K run at Big Hill Pond State Park on October 20th. I have no doubt that we broke many child labor laws because we worked all of those sweet children’s fingers to the bone!😳 But they were troopers! Kevin and Candy are raising some awesome kiddos! Also helping was my Ethan Stewart Mullis, Gracie Surratt and Danny Jarrell. THANK YOU ALL!!! It couldn’t have gotten done without all of you🤗🤗🤗 We missed Michelle Baxter, Ricky D. Alexander, and Jeff Haley, who tried their best to come and help but was unable to. Have no fear, there will be another day! Jeff Haley, Kevin wanted me to tell you that he’s my new favorite!😂😂😂
