Description: 

An area in Yoknapatawpha. When word reaches Jefferson about Vinson Gowrie's death, the sheriff is not there because he has gone "down into the opposite corner of the county" (27). We are assuming that this is the same as the place Gavin Stevens refers to later that day, when he says he phoned the sheriff "down at Peddlers Field Old Town" (34). This intriguing name is all readers learn about the place, which is in the part of Yoknapatawpha least visited by Faulkner's imagination.
