Just ten minutes away from Malone, you'll discover the village of Chateaugay (pronounced Shad-ah-gay - we know you'll feel better going there knowing that.).

From the wind farm, to a mysterious chasm, to a famous cheese factory it's well-worth visiting, are you ready to check it out?
The Malone area has grown an amazing variety of contributors to American industry. From clever inventors to devoted manufacturing legends, the area has a proud history and a unique present. From an 1835 railcar powered by a concealed horse, that ran at the incredible speed of 15 miles per hour, to "Malone pants," check out these unique locally made products.
Fort Covington is a hamlet only 20 minutes north of Malone, right at the Canadian border. Despite being a small town, with a long-standing reputation for the fineness of its farms, the area has three haunted sites. The town began as a blockhouse to shelter wounded soldiers during the War of 1812. It is named for General Leonard Covington, who was mortally wounded at the battle of Chrystler's Farm and died on a boat on his way to the then-named French Mills, in 1813. This is an appropriate beginning for a haunted area and a good jumping-off point for the stories that we've discovered!
