Description: 

On his 1936 map of Yoknapatawpha Faulkner himself locates "Armstid's" in the hills to the northeast of Frenchman's Bend. In this novel, however, Armstid's farm is clearly located south of the Bend, on the north side of and very close to the river - making this place one of the many examples of how Faulkner re-created his mythical world to suit the needs of a particular story. The farm features a house, a barn, and a shed where the Bundren family stays overnight.
