PEARL RIVER, N.Y. -- Pfizer in Pearl River has contributed in a large way economically and socially to Rockland County, according to a report in lohud.com.
The contribution began in 1907 when Ernst Lederly established his laboratories at what once was Turfler farm. The Pfizer property, 500 acres that run between Pearl River and Nanuet, has seen the unfolding of histories of families, says the lohud report recounting Pfizer's history.
