Description: 

Will Varner owns the only house in Frenchman's Bend with "more than one story"; the only other two-story building is Littlejohn's hotel (11). Because Will's daughter Eula lives there, the house is the place where "about a dozen" of the young men of Frenchman's Bend come every Sunday to tie their mules to "the Varner fence" and spend the afternoon "sitting-out" - courting - "on the veranda" of the house (145). Near the house is the "cabin" in which the Varners' cook lives (158).
