Bent Creek, part 1 questions

Which town is closest to Bent Creek?
This question has two right answers. The best answer is Skutter's Corners. Knotty Pine is also correct because when the Raymonds needed a place for the evening, Knotty Pine (50 miles away) was the nearest town big enough to have a hotel. Skutters Corners is home to Hiram and Thor. It is also where Hiram has his general store where the Raymonds applied for mail service and bought groceries. Hiram used to own the general store in Bent Creek that is now closed.

What is a marble orchard?
Stumpy is the one who called the graveyard next to the Bent Creek Church a marble orchard. Congratulations to the many of you who got this one correct!!!
