BAR HARBOR —  The popular Ocean Drive Dairy Bar was demolished Monday to make way for The Jackson Lab expansion.

The lab purchased the takeout restaurant on Jan. 28 for $200,000.

In all, the lab has purchased $2.6 million worth of abutting property to expand from their existing campus on Route 3 north to the Schooner Head Road intersection.

Jackson Lab’s other purchases include five apartment buildings bought in October of 2014, as well as two more residential properties that were purchased by the lab several years ago.
