The motel was built in 1960 by Joe and Juanita Richardson, who were like family to Sheriff Buford Pusser. It was in Room 110 that the sheriff lived for over four months in the 1970s when fire damaged his home. Ms. Juanita still runs the hotel and visitors enjoy seeing photos and hearing her stories about the sheriff.
