Mountain View #489 started life in 1957 in Crownsville, Maryland. In 1963, it relocated to Front Royal, VA, reopening as the Mount Vista Diner. It stopped serving food over a decade ago, last operating as the office of a used car lot. Recently the diner was moved off of its foundations, wrapped, and is currently sitting awaiting transport. It will be going into storage somewhere either in VA or PA shortly.
In August I drove past the site in Winchester where this diner will call home.
The mount vista diner is NOT going to winchester. It is going to a storage lot somewhere until it finds a home someday.
Where in Winchester? We’re hoping to do a Retro Roadmap video visit there and would love to be able to follow up on it
It’s not going to Winchester. Just into storage for the time being.
my family actually used to run the diner. Its a sad story but we had many years of memories at the booths listening to the jukebox. please let me know where she goes..its a sad day when popeyes replaces a good home cooked meal and memories..Amara
please note these pictures of the inside of Mount Vista Diner are not the actual inside the interior was not this set up and much more space between the counter and booths..I should know I grew up there…
