Question: While at Thanksgiving dinner a cousin brought up the point the Mayflower survives. I told them that the Mayflower in Plymouth is a replica. But she said there is a building in England with the lumber from the vessel? Is this possibly true?
Answer: The story you mention is iobe I am aware of. A barn that was constructed in the 17th century at Chalfont St. Giles, Chilern, Buckinghamshire, England meets the description. This barn was supposed to have been partly constructed from dismantled timbers from a vessel called the MAYFLOWER. However if it was the Mayflower which arrived in 1620 is debated by scholars since the 1920's. Information on the exact location and a picture of the barn can be found online at: http://www.imagesofengland.org.uk/Details/Default.aspx?id=44413
