As a gateway community to the Adirondack region, the city of Malone prospered during the late nineteenth century. People came to the area for the affordable land and made their fortunes growing hops and harvesting lumber, and because this city was an important railroad hub. This wealth led to the construction of hundreds of buildings, including wonderful examples of elaborately adorned and painted Queen Anne and Italianate homes, many still meticulously maintained. The day will begin with a visit to the Franklin County Historical & Museum Society, followed by a walking tour of several historic neighborhoods.
The tour begins at 10:00 am and ends around 4:00 pm.
The fee is $35 for AARCH and FCHMS members and $45 for non-members.
