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

Hi all!

I'm back! Haven't been posting as I have been pretty busy with other stuff, but I'm glad to see our faihful visitors still check up on us. I plan to keep posting as much as I can to keep people informed about our doings. Barb will be having a melanoma operation on June 10 in Hanover, NH at Dartmouth Hitchcck Med CT. It's a great hospital and she only has the cancer on the surface of her skin, but I am sure she'd love to hear from any one who feels like writing. (It has to be snail mail, I"m afraid). Write to Barbara FIske Calhoun (a great artist and a visionary community creator) at 606 Fiske RD # 1 Rochester VT 05767. She would love to hear from you, even a post card. People she doesn't know are just as welcome to send cards as people whom she does. If you feel like doing it. Photos are especially enjoyed as she likes to see what people look like. She is 91, soon to be 92 years old, and determined to hang on to life to the last 2nd!
