In 1956, Marilyn Monroe stopped by the North Fork Store, rebranded Grace’s Diner for the feature film “Bus Stop.” Her turn as Chérie—which earned her a Golden Globe nomination—ends with Monroe boarding a bus and heading down state Highway 75. More than 60 years later, the store itself was on the move. With the surrounding lot heading to market, the building is being relocated to a new site north of Ketchum, according to a source familiar with the sale. So, on Tuesday evening, around 7 p.m., it boarded a bus—or flatbed—of its own, and headed toward its own next stop.
