Another one of the ghost towns listed in Ron Brown(a)s books. It had a sister ghost town to the north called Gillie(a)s Hill. Located in Brockton Municipality it was founded by John Malcolm in the 1850(a)s.

As the village grew it had: a school, church, store, post office, hotel, cheesemaker, blacksmith and a carpenter.

It did not get a railway line but did manage to survive the first wave of the railway boom. By the late 1890(a)s Malcolm headed into decline.

Today you will find the school, cemetery and a cairn dedicated to the town(a)s pioneer memory.
