Indian Castle Church with a special display of daisies, June 10, 2008.
Once a year, the churchyard blooms with a breath-taking display of daisies.

The daisies are so thick they almost look like a blanket of snow from a distance.

Built in 1769 by Sir William Johnson, Commissioner of Indian Affairs.

Owned and maintained by the Indian Castle Church Restoration and Preservation Society. The small, simple, but elegant, 239 year old church rests on a gentle knoll with a background of pine trees, and old tombstones. The white church has long kept watch over Mohawk Valley travelers and the church can be easily seen from the New York State Thruway.

The bell tower holds the original bell purchased for the pleasure of the Indians by Sir William Johnson. After the war, the Indians tried to retrive what they considered to be their bell but the clapper sounded the alarm and the neighborhood responded. The bell still resides in the bell tower, the fire in 1979 that nearly destroyed the church, left the bell still in the bell tower. The roof held, the steeple held, the church stood, and was eventually repaired.

Letter of appeal concerning urgent repairs to the church.
