MOHAWK, N.Y --- Some residents in Mohawk started their Thanksgiving off with a trip to church, one of the most historic in Mohawk.
The Fort Herkimer Church was packed with partitioners for their annual Thanksgiving service.
The church was built during the 1700s making it one of the oldest running churches in the state.
Chruch goers and organizers said to NEWSChannel 2 that its the history that keeps people coming back for the service each year.
"We get to come back to our roots every single thanksgiving and that's what makes this so special," said Christie Nasypany-Cicero.
"Each year people count their blessings and they are thankful for the gracious gifts God has given them and its just a blessing to see new faces and old faces," said Robert Nasypany.
The church is located on Route 5S in Mohawk.
