Living in the Area
Mallorytown is a great place to live year round or seasonally. Our small town charm makes the perfect location for young families and retirees who are looking for a safe and quiet environment offered in rural living, and is still close enough to many larger cities and international bridges. This creates an ideal living location on top of the natural beauty of living along the St. Lawrence River.
