Last Friday, November 3rd, was the one-year anniversary of the Mayflower II's arrival at Mystic for the current 30-month restoration effort.  The ship, a replica of the vessel that brought the Pilgrims to the new world in 1620 and built in 1957 in England as a gift to the United States in thanks for support during and after WWII, is an attraction at Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, Massachusetts and will be undergoing a 30-month restoration at the seaport in preparation to sail it again on the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrim's voyage.
