Description: 

"Wyott's Crossing" (over the Tallahatchie River) is mentioned twice in the novel. In the passage describing Vaiden Wyott's origins also provides the early history of the site: her family came from the country, "where they had owned the nearest ford, crossing, ferry before Jefferson even became Jefferson" (154). By the era of The Town it is now the site of a bridge. In his capacity as County Attorney, Gavin is planning to drive up there with Chick, to help resolve the locals' "squabble over a drainage tax suit" (181) - though in the event they don't make the trip.
