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 Hall Fiske Calhoun unwell at the moment

Dear Everyone,
Barbara had a melanoma removed from her arm last week. We had hoped it was only a subaceous subhorrea (benign) but it was dark, so I was pretty sure it was melanoma. I should have gotten her to the dermatologist sooner... but the weather up here is terrifying to her.
Anyway, they think that it has not gone beyond the epidermis, or not very far, so we can surely hope she will be ok. I appreciate anyone who feels up to calling or writing her and can give you the info to do so, if you want.
She will be ok, I imagine. Holding her in the Light, as Quakers say.
