Description: 

The Sheriff of Yoknapatawpha lives in "a frame house" with a "flower bordered walk to the porch" (301). To reach it, Jason drives across the Square, then turns into a "narrow" and "quiet" street (301). It is close enough to the African American section of town for him to hear the church bells ringing there as he tries to convince the Sheriff to go after his niece.
