Description: 

What the narrative calls "the homes of white people" (114) and "the houses of white people" (115) can be found in many different parts of Jefferson, but Joe Christmas' nighttime walk takes him through one specific section, between the Square and Freedman Town, identified this way. He notes the "chairs upon the lawn" and "verandas" where "white faces" can be seen (115). We are also assuming the the Sheriff's house is in this neighborhood; all we know about its location is that when Percy Grimm goes there it is somewhere north of the Square (454).
