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

The All Night Dance Party is coming soon! 65 Years, Quarry Hill!

Hooray! We are about to celebrate our 29th All Night Dance Party on our 65th year. We dance all night in costumes (this year Hollywood is the theme, apparently, though I don't remember themes in the past), and in the morning, people have blueberry pancakes at my house. Please come and bring-- food, some money to buy food, bedding, a cheery attitude, and some ideas for games. How about "Journey to the End of Quarry Hill," based on the San Francisco "Journey to the End of the Night," in which you try to stop one another from passing checkpoints all over the city. Maybe we could do a version designed for QH? I look forward to seeing everyone and am hoping we can have at least one dinner that we all bring food for and cook all together. Love, Ladybelle
