Brick Kiln (Location Key)

Code: 
071
Description: 

Brick kilns appear in two fictions, in two very different ways. In "Dry September" it is at an "abandoned brick kiln" that Will Mayes is lynched, and his body presumably disposed of in one of the ruined "weed- and vine-choked vats without bottom" at the site (179). In The Town, which was published a quarter century later but set at about the same chronological moment as the story, the brick kiln is where Grover Cleveland Winbush is the night watchman, which implies it is operational.
