"To Kill A Mockingbird" takes place in the small fictional town of Maycomb, in Alabama, during the three years of the Great Depression. Scout describes it as a 'tired old town.' later descriptions indicate that Maycomb was a slow, boring town with nothing to do. For example, Scout says about the mood of the town ' there was no hurry, for there was nowhere to go, nothing to buy and no money to buy it with, nothing to see outside the boundaries of Maycomb Country.' It is based on the Monroeville, Alabama.
