A look Back on July 10th

The former Tommy's Deluxe Diner of Middletown, RI started its journey on the way toward its next life. It arrived a few days later in Oakley, Utah.

The restoration process began while it was temporarily located behind City Hall. In December 2007 it was moved onto its foundation at the Weber Canyon Road site. Many individuals were a part of this ambitious frame up restoration project. We thank Keith Walker for his vision and determination that brought this project to completion.

Tommy's was renamed Road Island Diner, linking it to its Rhode Island and Providence Plantations roots. It recently reopened and we posted an entry here.
