The Scarlet Letter

Where exactly is the widow's house located? If so please indicate the chapter.

Is there a quotation that talks about where the widow lives? Like near the market place or across the scaffold? Or is it west, north, south or east? Thanks.

She lives next to the cemetary and the King's Chapel.

The new abode of the two friends was with a pious widow, of good social rank, who dwelt in a house covering pretty nearly the site on which the venerable structure of King's Chapel has since been built. It had the grave-yard, originally Isaac Johnson's home-field, on one side, and so was well adapted to call up serious reflections, suited to their respective employments, in both minister and man of physic. The motherly care of the good widow assigned to.
