Description: 

Jack Houston's farm is "three miles away" from Frenchman's Bend (186); it is located in "the hills," at least "a mile" away from the "rich, broad, flat river-bottom country" where the hamlet sits (190). He grew up in his parents' "old pre-Civil War house" - described as "no mansion, owning no columns, [but] too big for three" (237). After he returns to Yoknapatawpha and marries, he builds a "new house on a new site nearer the road" (238). His property includes a milking-shed, a stable, and the pasture with a creek and a ravine in it where Ike Snopes meets the cow and where Mink Snopes' calf spends a winter.
