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

All Night Dance Party in July...

I hope to see many of our friends at the All Night Costume Dance Party this summer. It will be fun and I'm sure many things that are unexpected will happen... Like the night when the jazz musicians from Waitsfield showed up at three in the morning. That was a good night. This is our 65th anniversary here at QH, so I hope people will think of things to do to celebrate this fact and to have a different sort of all night party, maybe some new stuff in it. I look forward to seeing you all. Safety and fun can co-exist! I'm typing with borrowed glasses while waiting for my own to show up (being fixed) so don't be surprised if there's a typo or 2.
