Description: 

Described as "the little store which Sutpen managed to set upon the highroad" (539) after he finished serving in the Civil War, this is the place where Wash works as "clerk and porter" (539). Wash and Sutpen drink whiskey in the rear of the building just as they drank in the scuppernong arbor in the years before the war.
