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.
Click on the thumbnails below for a larger view.
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.
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.
