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 Everyone,

I'm staying for a little while at Curtis Pond, "home of all my many dreams," one of the places I love the most. It's in Maple Corner, Calais, about 10 mi. outside Montpelier. Beautiful dreaming water lilies, cool sweet water, kayaking and canoeing, friends, peace. I hope to meet any and all of you who want to meet Quarry Hill when I return about the 1st of August. I'll post here from time to time anyway... with thoughts and news. Anyone with related ideas or thoughts welcome to post (let me know with a comment) Ladybelle
