Description: 

At least as early as 1833, Yoknapatawpha contains "three churches" (24). Goodhue Coldfield is a steward in the Methodist church. Sutpen's family worships at a different church, just northwest of town; it is most likely Episcopalian, the preferred denomination for the planter class. The third church is not described or denominated, but given the religious demographics throughout the Yoknapatawpha fictions, it is pretty definitely a Baptist or a Presbyterian congregation that worships here.
