www.summerguidecapecod.com 32 Since 2016 Mayflower II had been undergoing a restoration in the Henry B. DuPont Preservation Ship Yard at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut. A national icon, Mayflower II is the replica of Mayflower, the ship that carried the Pilgrims across the Atlantic in 1620. Mayflower II was constructed during 1955-1956 at Upham Shipyard in Brixham, England. She was presented to the American people as a show of respect for the World War II alliance between the United States and the United Kingdom. Most of the restoration work was structural, however additional work was done to improve historical accuracy. The completed restoration brought her back to glory in time to celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the Pilgrims 1620 arrival.
