UK, Berea Teaming Up On Mayflower II Restoration
LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 25, 2014) — A connection between the University of Kentucky and Berea College, a small private school in the Bluegrass State, is about to come full circle as the two institutions work together on a historic project.
It involves the Mayflower II, a replica of the 17th-century ship that brought the pilgrims to this country, and the wood needed to repair the 57-year-old vessel. Jeff Franklin of the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment picks up the story from there.
