The Shawmut Diner is being prepared for a move to its next location.

The diner was lifted from its foundation Friday morning to a truck which will transport it to the Bristol County House of Corrections in Dartmouth.

The actual move will be this Tuesday. The Paleologos family has donated the historic diner to the Bristol County Sherrif's Office and is paying for the move.  The diner will be used to train inmates in the food service industry.
