New Arkham [2, 98]
Large windows adorn the bright purple trim and hot pink paint on this single story club. Various band posters, mostly from the 80s, are spread over the walls. The paint has started to peel at the base of the building from rain splashing up from the sidewalk. Large dirt filled pots still line the building, although the contents have long since been destroyed.
Club Chester was built in 1982 at the former site of a city park. The quest to build the club began in 1979, when accused cocaine dealer, Chester Willingham, moved to Malton to start a new nightclub. The club ultimately came to now as Club Chester following a failed run as The Hot Spot.
In July of 1979, Chester Willingham moved to Malton in possession of large sums of money, which were never explained. He settled in the New Arkham area with the hopes of starting his own club and quickly became influential in local politics. Within 6 months, the demolition of the Craig Park made its way to the planning commission. Local citizens opposed the idea. For the following year debated where held and studies were presented in hopes of swaying the commission.
The local citizens immediately began questioning the integrity of Chester. The 6 month period saw him arrested on multiple charges, none of which ended in convictions. Numerous protests were held and petitions were signed to stop the destruction of the park. However, Chester was able to hold out on his request and ultimately the commission sided with him.
Once the park was destroyed, Chester was able to purchase the land from the city. He began construction on his club in March of 1981. Construction did not go well, on multiple occasions unexplained fires occurred. Following a tedious building process, in February of 1982 The Hot Spot opened. Initially billed as a modern dance hall, it quickly became better known for drugs than dance.
On the morning of July 3, 1983 federal agents raided The Hot Spot and seized 5 kilograms of cocaine and nearly one million in cash. Chester Willingham was not caught. Following the conclusion of the investigation, it was determined that Chester escaped to Mexico a few days before the raid with an untold sum of money. The club was seized and eventually sold at auction.
The club was purchased by a local, Mr. Sunshine or Jake Bass. Using the existing publicity the club was renamed Club Chester and continued operating until the outbreak. The club remained a haven for drug use and a sore spot for most of the community. Mr. Sunshine moved from the area shortly before the outbreak
Club Chester is to be kept Extremely Heavily Barricaded at all times.
