Old Arkham is a suburb of Malton, located in the southwest of the city. Originally simply called Arkham, it served as a trading outpost during the 1800's and was a separate entity until Malton expanded and eventually engulfed Arkham. By the 1970s Malton expanded past Arkham's original borders - the area west was dubbed New Arkham, while the site of the original settlement became known as Old Arkham. Things were relatively quiet in Old Arkham up to the Outbreak. Zombies normally don't take much interest in Old Arkham because there simply aren't large amounts of survivors living here.

Old Arkham Information Resources
The Old Arkham Building Information Center contains status reports and updates on key buildings in the suburb.
Starting in December of 2020, the Old Arkham Reclamation Effort set out to restore Old Arkham. When the OARE arrived, the majority of buildings in Old Arkham were longtime ruins with triple-digit repair costs. At the time of writing, 90% of the buildings have been restored to recently ruined or ruined for some time, and the suburb's danger level has been updated to very dangerous. --AspiR (talk) 10:25, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
19/11/2020 All buildings are ruined with very high repair costs. Around 40 zombies in the suburb, almost all of them hidden inside buildings on the eastern side of the suburb, 1 zombie per building. A week ago, I was killed when hiding in a dark building here by two zombies, both attacking simultaneously. Together with the eerily systematic building occupation, this suggests zombies here are perfectly coordinated. It is very dangerous for lone survivors to sleep in this suburb. --Jelito2008 (talk) 11:06, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
Survivor specific information
The Old Arkham Reclamation Effort has been operating in the suburb since December 2020 with the goal of restoring it. The OARE is comprised of different survivor groups aligned for this purpose, including The Bottlecaps, the Soldiers of Crossman and Operation Swalton, along with various freelance survivors looking for a challenge. Updates on the OARE's progress can be heard on 26.04 Mhz Radio Southwest Malton. All survivors are welcome to participate, and The Bottlecaps are actively recruiting for people to settle in the area (visit my talk page to get in contact). --AspiR (talk) 10:48, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
ROAR, the Reformed Old Arkham Republic has returned as a confirmed survivor group that is active. It coalesces with some of the smaller groups within Old Arkham under the umbrella of the SW Malton Crusaders. The historical ROAR board can be found at  The SW Malton Crusaders' board can be found at .
As of 22 August 2007, the Reformed Old Arkham Republic ROAR has adopted the use of indoor Revive Points. St Alda's Church (16, 96) and St. Neot's Church (13, 92) have been designated as Indoor Revive Points.
These buildings are to be left un-barricaded and are no-kill zones. Survivors and zombies alike are encouraged to assist in keeping these buildings barricade-free. Residents are also asked not to dump any bodies found inside these revive points, as these are likely to be revivified survivors. If you are seeking a revive and find yourself unable to enter a revive point, you may wait outside.
The Northeast corner of Old Arkham is included in the Four Corners.

-- "But I am at Pridmore Way School!!"
-- "Did you say to meet at the Edbrook Walk Fire Station or the Edbrook Building? Oooh, the Edgcumbe Drive Fire Station, got it!"
Finding your way in Old Arkham can be difficult sometimes. Some have speculated that time and space itself distort in Old Arkham. Most historians, however, note the suburb's long history of settlement and occupation as the reason for its sometimes disorientating urban physiognomy. Over the centuries, literally layers upon layers of architecture have been built here. Meanwhile, events such as floods, or the freakish Great Fire of 1912, destroyed large parts of Old Arkham. Many of these areas were later rebuilt. Old Arkham is a suburb whose ancient, dense, often contradictory and enigma-riddled history is reflected in its streets and its buildings.
