Malone is a town in Franklin County, New York, United States. The population was 14,545 at the 2010 census.The Town of Malone contains a village also named Malone, which is the county seat. The town is an interior town, centrally located in the county.HistoryThe 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.In June 2015, the town received national attention after David Sweat and Richard Matt, escaped convicts from the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York, were the subject of a 3-week manhunt in the area. Matt was shot and killed in Malone, while Sweat remained on the run until June 28 when he was captured in the nearby town of Constable, New York.
