Description: 

When he retires, Meadowfill buys a "little corner of the Compson place" (361) located on a strip of land "south to the road known as Freedom Springs Road then east along said Road" (367). On this site he builds a "little unwired un-plumbing-ed house" (361). The property is also unfenced, which creates a long-standing feud between him and the local boys "who had a game of raiding the few sorry untended fruit trees which he called his orchard" (362), and later a more serious conflict between him and Res Snopes, who builds "a hog-lot along the boundary of old Meadowfill's orchard" (363). The feud heats up after Eula Acres is developed and a "new arterial highway" to Jefferson is planned in 1934, "one of the big oil companies" seeks to purchase land "to build a filling station on" (366).
