Situated on Main Street just across from the Franklin County Courthouse, Malone: Centenary United Methodist Church is a visible and historic landmark in the heart of Malone, New York. A Methodist presence was established in 1806 shortly after the town was formed from part of the town of Chateaugay in 1805 – first as “Harison”, after Richard Harison who had purchased the land and founded the town, later in 1808 to “Ezraville”, after Ezra L’Hommedieu, and finally to “Malone” in 1812 . The distinctive Centenary United Methodist Church building, with its red brick exterior and tall clock tower steeple became a prominent fixture on Main Street in 1866 with generations of congregants worshiping within the walls ever since.
