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

Not sure I remembered to mention my article on Blogcritics

TV Open Thread: Sister Wives - “Gambling on the Future” I published an article on Sister Wives on Blogcritics last month-- I think this was the 2nd to the last article. They like to have writers give their blogazine credit for first publication, so I'm making sure I do it. If you are interested in the phenomenon of polygamy (Fundamentalist Mormon style in this case) you may wish to read my series of summing-up articles on this TLC show, which I am sure will return soon with a new baby coming for Robyn, the 4th wife. I find it an interesting phenomenon mostly because there is a closeness between the women that seems very familiar to me, and very valuable. Check out these articles, if you wish, on at TV Ope Thread. Ladybelle Fiske
