Description: 

The narrative distinguishes the building which houses "the commissioner's office" as "the federal courthouse in Jefferson" (62), which seems to be a different building than the county courthouse in the Square. Oxford, Mississippi, the town on which so much of Faulkner's Jefferson is based, is in the U.S. government's Northern District of Mississippi, and does have a federal courthouse building.
