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

Spielpalast Cabaret! See it if you can!

Last night Brion, my daughter Joya, and I went to Burlington, VT. to see my niece, Eva Us, and her son, my grandnephow Amir, in a wonderfully funny and crazy cabaret entertainment they, with a group of actors and dancers called the Spielpalast Cabaret, put on each year. I was really amazed and delighted by most of it... the Sally Rand fan dance-- Eva's "Masochism Tango" (dance to the song by Tom Lehrer, one of the funniest songwriters of all time; Amir dressed as the Killer Rabbit in "The Holy Grail" of Monty Python. We had a really wonderful time-- were glad our friends Bobi and Dan were there too. It was worth the long drive in the rain and everything. And so nice to get a chance to spend time with Joya,who lives in Boston and whom I don't see nearly enough. See this if you get a chance! The Cabaret is traveling to Scotland in August, where I predict they'll be received with laughter and delight.
