Malone Walking Tour

1 to 2 Hours

Nature and Historic Walks

There are amazing architectural features in Malone's downtown buildings. The Franklin County Historical and Museum Society has compiled a walking tour of the buildings, with notes about special features.

It's also a delightful way of exploring Malone's rich history. The First Congregational Church on Clay Street is the third church building to be built on this site, and a known stop on the Adirondack Underground Railroad. One of the tunnels is still intact in the church basement.

The Elks Lodge on Main Street was the original residence of William A. Wheeler, U. S. Vice President under Rutherford B. Hayes from 1877-1881. He was known as as "the New York Lincoln." He was one of the founders of the Republican Party.

The North Country Community College campus on 90 Elm Street was a former convent built in 1880. It was last owned by the Ursuline nuns before its present use.
