Description: 

Located "in almost the exact center of the thousand and more acres his ancestors once owned" (71), Lonnie Grinnup's hut demonstrates the decay of the lineage of Louis Grenier, a wealthy planter who was one of the three founders of Yoknapatawpha County: Lonnie's home is "a conical hut with a pointed roof, built partly of mildewed canvas and odd-shaped boards and partly of oil tins hammered out flat. A rusted stovepipe projected crazily above it, there was a meager woodpile and an ax, and a bunch of cane poles leaned against it" (67-68).
