Description: 

Further away from Jefferson than the ice plant, at the end of a "narrow road" off "the highroad" from town, this "abandoned brick kiln" is described as "a series of reddish mounds and weed- and vine-choked vats without bottom" (179). It lies just beyond the ditch full of "dust-sheathed weeds" in which Hawkshaw lands after leaping out of McLendon's car. When the rest of the white men drive on with Mayes, it is implied that they lynch him at the kiln.
