The Radleys are a notorious family who kept to themselves and isolated their son Boo Radley. Their house is described as follows:
"The house was low, was once white with a deep front porch and green shutters, but had long ago darkened to the color of the slate-gray yard around it. Rain-rotted shingles drooped over the eaves of the veranda; oak trees kept the sun away. The remains of a picket drunkenly guarded the front yard— a “swept” yard that was never swept— where johnson grass and rabbit-tobacco grew in abundance....The shutters and doors of the Radley house were closed on Sundays, anotherthing alien to Maycomb’s ways: closed doors meant illness and cold weather only."
