Materials were purchased to build the church, but the work was done by former slaves. Crude was the order of the day. Pews, the entire building from the ground up, lectern, floors, plaster, all done by those who had no money to hire someone, but built a building that is still standing after 200 years. Oil lamps, piano, and stoves were the items purchased.” (Submitted on November 8, 2018.)
