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

Maliya and Ira


  1. New Babies of Quarry Hill!
    (Maliya lives in Wash. DC but she is "of" QH all the same. She's the daughter of my stepdaughter Corin, one of the sweetest people who ever walked the earth.

  2. I'm happy to have a chance to have Thanksgiving with my stepdaughter Corin, her aunt (and my daughter Joya's aunt) Nancy, their uncle Earl, their children, and others in Princeton Junction, N. J. It is a big vegetarian feast held each year. I'll get to meet Mailya. There will also be a vegetarian (apparently) feast at Quarry Hill. I wish that I could be in two places at once!
