In 1909, Czech immigrants living in the American Midwest sent a scouting party to find the perfect place to settle and recreate the agrarian life they left behind in Eastern Europe. 

They found it in the idyllic farmlands of what soon became the charming town of Malin. Set amidst the lush, rolling hills less than a mile above the California Oregon border, Malin greets visitors with a vast city park of towering Ash trees that features an Olympic sized swimming pool. The picturesque downtown boasts a refurbished 1930 movie theater, and several "yes-of-course-we-cook-from-scratch eateries."  To learn about the town’s history, politely ask the folks at the hardware store to let you in to the Historical Society Museum, where a WWII flying ace’s journal is just one of the many treasures.
