Does anyone know for sure if the Pad 34 swing arm and white room were saved?

I heard that Charlie Bell owned and sold the white room overseas years ago before he passed away.

Also I was wondering about the whereabouts of the two number 9 swing arms that were used at Pad 39 from LUTs 2 and 3. Were they saved or on display somewhere?

One of the swing arms is on outdoor display at KSC visitors centre, there is another indoors at the new Davidson Center for Space Exploration in Huntsville. I believe that the KSC arm is from LUT #1.

There is a third white room at Kansas Cosmosphere.

I read (probably here on cS) that the white room from Pad 34 still exists, but not sure where it is. Puerto Rico is the location I recall, but I may be wrong.

That's what I heard as well.
