"[Arkham] is a very old town full of witch legends..." -- The Colour Out of Space "...the changeless, legend-haunted city of Arkham, with its clustering gambrel roofs that sway and sag over attics where witches hid from the King's men in the dark, olden years of the Province." -- Dreams in the Witch House

"What lay behind our joint love of shadows and marvels was, no doubt, the ancient, mouldering, and subtly fearsome town in which we live--witch-cursed, legend-haunted Arkham, whose huddled, sagging gambrel roofs and crumbling Georgian balustrades brood out the centuries beside the darkly muttering Miskatonic." -- The Thing on the Doorstep

"On the third night frantic bands of searchers, led by the police, captured it in a house on Crane Street near the Miskatonic campus. They had organised the quest with care, keeping in touch by means of volunteer telephone stations, and when someone in the college district had reported hearing a scratching at a shuttered window, the net was quickly spread."

"After the entombment we were all somewhat depressed, and spent the afternoon at the bar of the Commercial House; where West, though shaken by the death of his chief opponent, chilled the rest of us with references to his notorious theories."

"The next night devils danced on the roofs of Arkham, and unnatural madness howled in the wind." -- Herbert West: Reanimator

"Then he went back to Arkham, the terrible witch-haunted old town of his forefathers in New England, and had experiences in the dark, amidst the hoary willows and tottering gambrel roofs, which made him seal forever certain pages in the diary of a wild-minded ancestor." -- The Silver Key

"Arkham is there, with its moss-grown gambrel roofs and the rocky rolling meadows behind it..." -- The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath

"The youth's own pastor - Dr. Wallace of Asbury M. E. Church in Arkham..." -- The Shadow Over Innsmouth

"It may be that centuries of dark brooding had given to crumbling, whisper-haunted Arkham a peculiar vulnerability as regards such shadows..."

"About the middle of August I returned to Arkham and re-opened my long-closed house in Crane Street."

"At last, regaining custody of my second son, Wingate, I settled down with him in the Crane Street house and endeavoured to resume my teaching--my old professorship having been kindly offered me by the college."

"I showed no sign of consciousness for sixteen and a half hours though removed to my home at 27 Crane Street, and given the best of medical attention." -- The Shadow Out of Time

"The public knows of the Miskatonic Expedition through our frequent wireless reports to the Arkham Advertiser and Associated Press, and through the later articles of Pabodie and myself." -- At the Mountains of Madness

"Then they stopped hoping when the horror occurred at the parsonage, leaving not a soul alive or in one piece." -- The Unnameable
