People in Maycomb are both scared and curious about the Radley family. The family is steeped in town lore. While they claim to be scared of the family, they have an insatiable appetite for rumor about the family. Prior to his death, Mr. Radley, Boo's father, had only been seen on his daily trip to collect groceries from 11:30am-12pm, and the family worshipped together in their own home on Sundays rather than going to church. This set apart Mr. Radley as different and abnormal.
