Description: 

This unprepossessing "small leanto room like a wood- or a tool-shed" is the original "Yoknapatawpha County courthouse" (4). It was constructed against the side of the (partially dismantled) jail on the day the settlement got its name, and became a 'courthouse' two days later when the box of records was moved into it.
