The account book for the building of the sanctuary (frame raised May 2, 1839) notes the purchase of a “Zink Vain” from J. R. Milliken for $100.37.  This is quite a princely sum, considering that the architect/framer was paid $1040.  The entire cost of erecting and furnishing the sanctuary was $4,185.68 — 175 years ago.
