The lumber mill in Malone was established before 1908 by the Joe Vance Lumber Company. It was sold to the Bordeaux Lumber Company ca. 1922.
Malone is a community on Moxie Creek fifteen miles east of Montesano in southeast Grays Harbor County. It was once a busy sawmill and shingle mill town, but now has no important industry. The name is for Hector J. Malone, who established the first shingle mill in 1897. Malone was a town where the company owned the land and all buildings.
