Welcome to Quarry Hill's Blog!

Quarry Hill Creative Center in Rochester, VT, founded 1946 by Barbara and Irving Fiske, is Vermont's oldest alternative community and at one time was probably also its largest. In the 60s -80s, as many as 90 people lived here.
It was and is visited each year, often in summer (but in every season, really) by visitors from all over the world.
We welcome interesting and creative people who are peaceful, bring no weapons, don't believe in hitting children or killing animals, and enjoy the beauty of Vermont and of themselves.

Most of us do not adhere to any particular dogma or religion, though many do find Eastern philosophy closest to our own thought (some of us are also members of the Quakers/Society of Friends).
We value the individual, particularly people who are energetic and have a sense of humor.
Visitors are welcome-- and prospective residents, too. There are some places for rent, others for sale. If interested, get in touch!
And, please follow the Blog and comment whenever you like!

"The symbol is the enemy of the reality, and the reality is ever one's true guide, true friend, true companion, and true self." Irving Fiske, 1908-1990

Barbara's 91st Birthday

Hi all,
Today is Barbara's 91st Birthday. She seems well and cheery most of the time. I'm sure she would love to hear from any of you, and if you don't have her phone number, please let me know and I will give it to you.
She was born in Tucson, at dawn, 91 years ago-- Sept. 9, 1919. Today is also Allen's birthday. We are planning to have a brunch to celebrate their b-days and that of Barbara Di Benedetto (Corona) on the 12th. If anyone can come, that would be great!
Check in here for more news.
