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

Happy April Fools Day... April is QH MONTH!

I'm glad it's April. One of my favorite months-- I really love May and Sept/Oct. (in Vermont). Also June, July, and August.
As you can see I'm personally not much on winter... we've had a lot this year and I don't ski.
Anyway-- April 10, 2011 will be QH's 65th anniversary (of the day Barb and Irv bought the land in 1946) -- Celebrate, QuarryHillians wherever you are! There are a lot of people out there who grew up at QH, or who lived here, or who were here for one day in 1966, or whatever-- please, anyone who wishes to, this would be a great time to post a nice thing about Q.H. on this site or on Facebook's Quarry Hill Creative Center page.

Quarry Hill is something that is magical to many-- and it still exists. But it is a struggle to keep it open and going and available, always. So please, everyone, good thoughts and memories, and if you want to do more than that, we would be happy to have people come back for some time to help fix things up, contribute financially, or in any way be happy that QH was and is in our lives.
No April Fool Joke!
Ladybelle... and all of us.
