Description: 

The "huge" barn, with "broken walls and roof" (42, 46), is about fifty yards behind the Frenchman place. It no longer has any agricultural uses. Tommy hides whiskey in its loft, under "a pile of rotting hay" (47). Pap goes to the bathroom in one of its deserted stalls. And Temple seeks refuge in its "crib" (99). "Crib" is the ordinary term for a space used to store grain or corn, but the word becomes grimly ironic as the setting for Temple's violation.
