The Mount Vista Diner – Front Royal, VA – Wrapped and moving

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.
