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

Please write in and tell us about yourselves! We'd love to know more about the people who read our Blog. Where do you live (in general)? What do you like about the Blog? What are your interests in life? How do you feel about community life-- would you like to live in a community of sorts or do you prefer nuclear family life or privacy (actually there's a fair amount of both of those things here, as well). Are you a fan of the Marx Brothers? I am! What are your favorite books, movies? Love to know more about you and have you know more about us. Visit this summer if you can, and thanks for reading our blog! --Ladybelle
