Description: 

The Yoknapatawpha county jail is in Jefferson, but the "penitentiary" where Caspey is serving a sentence "for stealing" is almost certainly the Mississippi State Penitentiary, better known as "Parchman Farm" (727). In existence since the early 20th century, it is located in the state's Delta region.
