History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The town was formed from part of the Town of Chateaugay in 1805. The town was originally named Harison, after Richard Harison who had purchased the land and founded the town. The name was changed in 1808 to Ezraville, after Ezra L'Hommedieu; and in 1812 to Malone.

During the War of 1812 the village was sacked by British troops making incursions from what would become Canada.

Former Governor Mario Cuomo instituted financial measures to increase economic stability to the county by bringing in many prisons (state and federal) to help "strengthen" the area.
