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

Quarry Hill Day # 65! Lyra Fiske's Birthday!

Happy 65th Anniversary of Quarry Hill Day, everyone-- the day Irving and Barbara bought the place, at 4:45 PM, just before the Town Clerk's Office closed, they registered the deed.
We hope to include a celebration of QH Day in the Party week this summer and I hope everyone will come and help us celebrate.

It is an amazing thing to survive and create all that we have created for sixty-five years. And it has been a creative life, with our children and grandchildren our greatest creation. I am happy and proud and hope everyone else who is a part of QH or ever has been is, too.

Ladybelle and Brion
Happy Birthday, LYRA!!!
