Description: 

The county courthouse sits in the center of a square in the center of Jefferson. It is also spatially, politically and socially the center of Yoknapatawpha, and appears in many of the fictions Faulkner sets in the county. At the end of the story, when Bayard and Ringo ride through town to Granny's grave, they "rode past the brick piles and the sooty walls that hadn't fallen down yet, and went on through what used to be the square" (115).
