Description: 

Described in greater detail in The Hamlet, Houston's land has a house and a pasture. In The Mansion, Faulkner contrasts Mink's "meagre pasture" (10) with Houston's land, which is abundant enough to sustain a beef herd. This location includes spot on the road between Houston's farm and Varner's store, "just over the brow of a short hill" (8), where Mink is almost accidentally run down by Houston on horseback.
