Description: 

The stately house where Horace and Narcissa grew up has been in the Benbow family for a long time. It has been unoccupied for the ten years between Flags in the Dust and this novel when Horace moves back into it. Honeysuckle now grows along the fence that separates the property from the street. Narcissa objects to her brother letting Ruby sleep there, and Horace is initially equally fastidious about allowing Clarence Snopes to get closer to the house than the gate at the end of the drive.
