The town of Maycomb, modeled after Harper Lee's hometown of Monroeville, Alabama, resembles many "tired old Southern towns" with its courthouse in the center of town. The main streets circle around this square on which the courthouse has been built. If this square is typical, there are probably sidewalks leading up to the doors on each side of the courthouse and park benches on which the Idlers' Club members probably sit and gossip. Inside the courthouse Atticus Finch has his office, as do others connected with the law. The post office is nearby, too, as are some of the established businesses.

--Chapter 1 (pages are from the Warner Books 1982 edition)

Located in this chapter is the mention of Finch's Landing (p.9), Old Sarum, the Cunninghams, (p.24-25 and p. 167, p.225, and p.229 also). and the DewDrop Inn & Fishing Camp (all on p. 14). Also, the first mention of Mrs. Dubose's house and Miss Rachel's house (p.11) comes in this chapter.

--Chapter 2

The Maycomb County High School (pp.8-9) is mentioned as part of the school grounds. They are south of the Finch home and slightly west of the Radley home.

--Chapter 4

Cecil Jacobs lives at the far end of the street (p.39); Mrs. Dubose lives "two doors up the street" from the Finches. (p.39)

--Chapter 5

Miss Maudie is a close neighbor of the Finches whose house is on the other side of the street from them. (p.46)

--Chapter 6

Mr. Avery is a boarder in a house that is across the street from Mrs. Dubose. (p.55)

The Deer Pasture is behind the Finch home. (p.58)

--Chapters 8 and 23

--Miss Stephanie's house is next to Miss Maudie's and directly across from the Finch home. (p.75 and p.219)

--Chapter 9

Tom Robinson is alluded to when Atticus confers with his brother Jack about the upcoming trial (p. 93). He is later mentioned in Chapter 19, of course, when he is on the witness stand.

--Chapter 11

Referring to the OK Cafe (p.106), Mrs. DuBose says Scout will end up waiting tables there if she does not change her ways.

V.J. Elmore's (p.105) variety store is where Scout buys her baton that Jem uses later to knock off the blooms of Mrs. Dubose's camellias. It is located on the square in town.

--Chapter 12

The Quarters is the area "outside the southern town limits" (p.120) where the blacks live.

Calpurnia takes the children to the First Purchase Church with her on a Sunday that Atticus must be in Montgomery. (p.120)

--Chapter 15

Newspaper Office, Post Office, Tyndal's Hardware, Courthouse, Courthouse square (p. 152) are all in the center of Maycomb.

--Chapter 16

Dolphus Raymond sits with the "Negroes" at the far corner of the courthouse square (p.162); he appears to drink liquor from a container in a paper bag.

Jitney Jungle (p.162) Miss Maudie does not believe that Miss Stephanie is telling the truth when she says she is on her way to Jitney Jungle rather than the courthouse.

Drug Store (p.162) The drugstore is on the northeast corner of the square. People attend a "gala occasion" with the trial and the "more affluent chased their food with drugstore Coca-Cola in bulb-shaped soda glasses."

--Chapter 17

Dump, the Ewells  When Bob Ewell is called to testify, Scout describes the area where they live near the dump. "...the Ewells gave the dump a thorough gleaning every day, and the fruits of their industry...." (p.173)

--Chapter 25

Barker's Eddy (p. 242) is "at the end of a dirt road off the Meridian highway about a mile from town." This is "a swimming hole."
