Jefferson Marshal's Station (Location Key)


The "little cubbyhole of an office in an alley" off the Square where the town's night marshal is supposed to be headquartered is first mentioned in Intruder in the Dust (207). That novel adds that although the office has "a stove and a telephone," the marshal won't stay there, spending his time instead in "the cafe" nearby that "stays open all night" (207, 206) - which has led the town to connect the marshal's office telephone to "a big burglar alarm bell on the outside wall," to make sure someone in the cafe will hear it ringing and alert the marshal (207). The marshal's "station" is mentioned again in The Town (167).
