First Congregational Church

The First Congregational Church in Malone had tunnels for slaves to hide in on their way to freedom. Most people thought of it as an ordinary church, but only few knew the secrets it held. The pastor, Ashbel Parmelee, risked his life to save others.

The Elks Lodge

The Elks Lodge was the home of William Almon Wheeler, Vice President of the United States. Most people wouldn't have known that Wheeler grew up in a poor family. He worked hard to achieve great things, and make his home town known. He tried and tried to become president but never quite succeeded. He was a good man, and was respected among the people of Malone.
