Inscription. 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.
