Description: 

A real town in Lafayette county less than 10 miles south-southwest of Oxford, on the route between that town and Starkville, Taylor is where Temple leaves the train bound for a football game between state rivals and drives away with Gowan. The railroad station is a very rural setting, deserted except for two wagons and a few lounging men in overalls. In Temple's eyes, at least, it looks "stark and ugly in the fresh morning" (36).
