    Had an amazing time with my fellow LEO brethren, learned a lot about the legend of law enforcement officer. We were treated as family in his home were friends and family took us back in history to relive Sheriff Pusser life.

    I think people that enjoy history would really enjoy this place. It is an actual museum on the inside with very interesting artifacts.

    Absolutely hallowed ground. Buford Pusser is a true and great American hero. This museum is truly wonderful and the hosts present the guiding oration with all the heartfelt love this great man deserves. Our highest recommendation! *****

    I remember keeping up with buford in the Sunday paper. I was 17 them. I wanted to be a state trooper but was to young to sign up. Keeping up on buford stories and reading all the books I feel like I have known him always. I have many friends in Adamsville I care about.
