Servants' Cabin at Compson Place

Compson Domain in "Appendix, Compson" (Location)

In addition to the story of the Compson family, the "Appendix" tells the story of the place where they live. It begins as the "Compson Domain" (329): a "solid square mile" of "forested" land that the first Yoknapatawpha Compson acquires from the Chickasaw Indians in 1812 (328). "Twenty years later," it is a large cotton plantation, "with its slavequarters and stables and kitchengardens," "formal lawns and promenades and pavilions," and a "columned porticoed house" designed by an architect and furnished from France (328).
