Malone began its roots in 1802 when Richard Harrison purchased the area and named it after the great Irish Shakespearean scholar, Edmund Malone. Its streets are lined with some of the finest examples of Victorian architecture in Northern New York State. Malone's celebrated residents included William Wheeler, Vice President of the United States from 1877 to 1881 under President Rutherford B. Hayes; and Orville Gibson, the world-famous guitar and mandolin designer.
