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

Hello, happy June!

It's been a while since I was able to post... various things going on. Barbara will be having a second melanoma operation on her arm on June 10, in Hanover,NH. It was nice to see Irene Collins the other day when we took Barb to the hospital-- very comforting to see an old friend. It was Memorial Day and sorry we had to be there on such a lovely day. But of course I was relieved to find that Barbara was probably ok, perhaps simply having a little heat stroke. Fortuituously Jennie Yon is going to come up and try to help Rob tidy Barb and her room up, fix food and so on, about 2-3x per week. I am happy because I feel Jennie is a very helpful person,and Barb loves the little girls... Barb sesms to be feeling better now. It was nice of Susie Mc Cune Disbrow to come up and visit with her while she has been ill. We greatly welcome visitors, as Barb is a very social person! Allen was here too, for a few hours the other day. It was nice to see him. Hope he and Marion will speind more time at QH this summer.
