Description: 

Descended from one of the oldest families in Yoknapatawpha, Eunice Habersham lives in a "columned colonial house on the edge of town which had not been painted since her father died and had neither water nor electricity in it" (74). Unlike the newer houses in town, set close to the street on narrow lots, hers is typical of "the old big decaying wooden houses of Jefferson's long-ago foundation," set back in a large lawn of "old trees and rootbound scented and flowering shrubs" (117). Chick's comic fantasy of her driving home at the end of the day Monday suggests that she lives south of the Square (cf. 183).
