Gillespie's Farm (Location Key)


Located on a hill somewhere between Mottson and Jefferson, Gillespie's is where the Bundrens spend the last night of their journey to town in As I Lay Dying. During the night they move Addie's coffin from under an apple tree across the yard from the house to the barn. This barn is visible from the back porch of the house, where Dewey Dell and Vardaman sleep. In an attempt to end the journey, Darl burns it down.
