Description: 

The home of Eupheus (Doc) Hines, his wife, and their daughter Milly, who is the mother of Joe Christmas. Not much is said about this location, except that it is in Arkansas. Hines is the foreman of a small sawmill there, which is probably the economic basis for a small town. It is presumably at that town that the traveling circus stops, which is where Milly meets the man who (supposedly) is Joe's biological father. (Arkansas is also mentioned as a place Lucas Burch might head for in his attempt to outrun his responsibilities as the father of Lena Grove's baby.)
