Description: 

Located on a hill near a spring, the schoolhouse is where Addie Bundren teaches school before she marries Anse. It is also where Addie sees Anse pass by in a courting ritual, and where he first talks with her. According to Addie, driving by the school takes Anse "four miles out of his way" (170), which makes it seem likely that she is teaching at the school in Frenchman's Bend that appears in other Yoknapatawpha fictions. But the text never makes that explicit.
