“The elevation of the dome, which is all built from the interior, is from four to six inches above the level of the field. Beside the moss or grass, they frequently employ coarse wax from the ceiling of the vault, for the purpose of keeping out rain, and preventing high winds from destroying it.” &mdash Goodrich, 1859
