The New Kursk Root Hermitage was founded on a rural property forty miles from New York in Mahopac (Putnam County), donated by a well known philanthropists, Prince and Princess Belosselsky-Belozersky for the purposes of sheltering the Kursk Root Icon.

The Icon, a symbol of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad, was brought in 1951 to the U.S. from Germany. The hermitage functioned at first as a Synodal podvorye, under the abbacy of Bishop Seraphim (Ivanov) of Chicago.

The monastery housed a printing press, a bakery, and a rest house for pilgrims as well as Candle making for the Russian Orthodox Churches. On the lands are chapels, a pond, and a small Russian cemetery.

The Kursk Root Icon was later taken to the Synodal residence in New York City. A fire in 1995 did alot of major damage to the church.

In 2004 the property was re-established as a parish dedicated to the Nativity of the Mother of God.
