Description: 

Located at the physical and social center of Yoknapatawpha, the county courthouse (with its apt "gothic entrance") and the wide grounds surrounding it (set with "locusts and water oaks") appear in many of Faulkner's fictions (281, 161). In Sanctuary it is the scene of Lee Goodwin's trial.
