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

Joya, Dan, and Christina in the Seventies

I am unsure of the author of this photograph, but would like to thank her or him for its use. If anyone finds this objectionable please let me know and I will take the image down.
Joya, my daughter, here is quite young. Christina and Dan were two of her good friends (and mine) in those days. Dan was as a father to Joya when she was very little. I will always be grateful to them both! Joya was special and being with her was a great experience. She did stay up all night, however, as we felt that kids shoulld be free to do as they wished. Having friends who were willing to help us live in the freedom in which we rejoiced was a wonderful thing.
