The cobblestone barn, carriage
house and huge dairy barn were
the centerpiece of the 200-acre
country estate of Henry von L.
Meyer Sr., founder and vice
president of White Laboratories,
which manufactured nationally
known drugs such as Feenament
and Aspergum. The working farm
supported a dairy herd while its
produce was donated to charity.
Mr. Meyer and his wife, Laura,
were well-known philanthropists.
Among the beneficiaries of their
work were the State Charities Aid
Association, the Nyack YMCA, the
Boy Scouts, Rockland County
Conservation Association and the
Suffern Free Library, among
others. Ardent supporters of the
Rockland County SPCA, they established a branch shelter for homeless animals on their farm.
