Description: 

When Mrs. Armstid looks "up the road" from Varner's store, she sees (in this order) Mrs. Littlejohn's, the school, and then, the church, standing "on the crest of the hill . . . among its sparse gleam of marble headstones in the sombre cedar grove" (349). Presumably this is Rev. Whitfield's church; this novel does not identify it by denomination, but in The Mansion it is referred to as "the Baptist church."
