FINCH HOUSE.  Atticus' home was located on "the main residential street" in Maycomb. It had a porch with a front swing, where Atticus read to Scout; a dining room, living room and kitchen, which had a swinging door; and four bedrooms--Aunt Alexandra stayed in the front, guest bedroom when she arrived; Jem and Scout had adjoining bedrooms. There was a back door with steps that led to the back yard, where a deer pasture apparently adjoined the property

EWELL HOUSE.  The Ewell house was located "behind the town garbage dump in what was once a Negro cabin," not far from the Quarters.

FIRST PURCHASE A.M.E. CHURCH.  Located "in the Quarters outside the southern town limits, across the old sawmill tracks," it had a cemetery located beside it.
