“Muldraugh is a small town in an area the locals know as "Knox Country" - the dead centre of the State of Kentucky. It grew as an Army town, but now welcomes folks from all walks of life - some commuters to the bigger towns nearby, some military families and some living below the poverty line.
It's a small place, filled with good people - not to mention Spiffo's finest Chicken and Biscuits this side of Kentucky! Sure, not much happens here - but that doesn't mean Muldraugh life is dull...”
Muldraugh is a particularly low wealth and low income town, relying on Fort Knox for much of its income from tourism and military families. Many of its shops have been abandoned and cleared out prior to the Knox Event, with many stores being for sale or lease. Many residents are living below the poverty line, relying on Muldraugh's soup kitchen on Dixie Hwy and the large amount of mobile homes for shelter. There are a few larger and wealthier homes on the north side of the town, with various two-story homes, including Kate Smith and Bob Smith's safehouse.
Muldraugh has been the focal point for Project Zomboid ever since its first release as a tech demo in 2011. The town design has changed substantially since, starting with just one cell and later increased to two. Since everything was crammed into a small space, the town wasn't very interesting and rather confusing, with some houses having to make do without bedrooms or bathrooms. Leading up to the Steam release in November of 2013, the town of Muldraugh was wiped out and rebuilt, basing it on the satellite image of the real world Muldraugh. The town itself is now approximately 10 cells with the outskirts expanding to more than 200 cells.
The conspiracy crap??? tape mentions that years ago the Muldraugh area was the subject of military tests. Mass cattle deaths, strange taste in tap water and stench in the air have been noticed locally. This may indicate the US Military's involvement with the Knox Event, but it will probably never know if they caused it.
