More about this marker. The historic Indian Castle Church that the featured marker is located in front of is significant because the church was built by Sir William Johnson in 1769 for the Mohawk Indians. The Indian Castle website describes the church as follows: "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."
