Description: 

This unprepossessing "small leanto room like a wood- or a tool-shed" is the original "Yoknapatawpha County courthouse" (201). It was constructed against the side of the (partially dismantled) jail on the day the settlement got its name, and had its "consecration or ordination or whatever you call it" as a courthouse two days later, when the residents moved an iron box full of records into it (201).
