Lucas Beauchamp lives in one of the servant and tenant cabins on the McCaslin-Edmonds Place. Carothers Edmonds built it for Lucas and Molly Beauchamp when they married. At the center of the house is "the hearth on which even in summer a little fire always burned" (107). Behind it is a grassless yard through which a stone path runs. There are flower-beds planted with "prince's feather and sunflower, canna and hollyhock" (48), which are edged "with broken brick and bottles and shards of china and colored glass" (48).
