Elly's Home (Location Key)


The "biggish house" where Elly lives with her parents and her grandmother seems typical of the older residences in the better neighborhoods in Jefferson ("Elly," 208). It has "a deep veranda" set behind "screening vines" (208), and a yard that is large enough to contain a "clump of shrubbery" in which she and Paul can become more intimate than on the porch - though not, it turns out, large enough to give them privacy from her grandmother (211). It is close enough to the center of town for Elly and her visitors to hear "the courthouse clock strike eleven" each night, though that is the only cue the story gives about its exact location (208).
